TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Suzy Red has taught for over 30 years from Kindergarten through University, and delivered over 750 teacher workshops. She has created literature guides, songs, and surprising activities for all levels. She believes that the smiles and laughter of children are essential catalysts to their lifelong learning and to your lifelong joy of teaching. Their natural curiosity, songs, and love of movement are nurtured in today's most effective classrooms which no longer are hamstrung by standardized testing, but rather, welcome it as the Olympics of the classroom!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Award-winning literature offers endless possibilities for integrating the curriculum. When subjects are taught individually there really isn't enough time to fit everything in, but then, the real world doesn't divide our day into math, reading, science, social studies, physical education, music, art, and recess. But, the real world does not work in absolutes and individual subjects. Rarely, does one find the answer to a problem at work by doing one-step arithmetic or by looking up the definition in a dictionary. Instead, in the real world, successful people in all walks of life use all of the tools at their disposal to tackle real world issues. Sometimes LIFE demands that you save a bird, design a plan with a group of friends, outrun a bear, draw a map, counsel a co-worker, or decipher directions in a foreign place. Police officers and scientists use logic, group problem solving, research, math, questioning, science, intrapersonal skills, maps, and language skills to solve a crime or find a cure. A business man pours a myriad of skills into creating a sound business. In the same way, our best teachers do not isolate the skills they teach, but draw on the strength of some to empower the weaknesses of others. Literature is a natural source of integrating problem solving and character-building with skills for the real world.
