I am a hands-on, inquiry-based teacher. I liked my students to be working harder than me. We spent a lot of time learning outside, walking to a stream behind our school over time to discover how the woods changed. We raised earthworms and mealworms. We participated in the Invention Convention and worked in groups to learn. We spent much time helping one another to be as successful as possible. Our only failures were those who individually gave up.
