I have taught middle school for 16 years. My teaching experiences include all four content areas of math, science, social studies, and English as well as in all middle school grade levels of 6th, 7th, and 8th. I have taught regular education, special education, and I have been a connections teacher where I taught remedial math.
My teaching style is more aligned with Harry Wong. I set up my classroom to be self-sufficient whether I am there or out in an IEP meeting. My students are the one's who do the work, not me. If you take the time to train the students of the procedures at the beginning, then you only need to sporadically remind them of the expectations as the year progresses. I challenge my students to explore the content through hands-on activities as I stand back as a coach and a guide.
