I have taught in Florida for 9 years, and in Oklahoma for 1 year. 1 year as a 4th grade teacher, 1 year as a Kindergarten teacher, and 8 years as a 6th grade teacher.
I focus on student based, higher order learning. I use a facilitator model teaching style in my classroom. I try and emphasize student-centered learning and place a lot of responsibility on my students to take the initiative. Student collaboration is big in my classroom, as my classroom is set up in small groups of 3 to 4 students. My lessons are typically designed around group activities which promote active learning, student to student collaboration, and problem solving. I try and design my lessons to promote student processing and application of the course content in creative ways.
