TEACHING EXPERIENCE

19 years 6th grade Social Studies; Special Education; Math; Science

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to give my students the information they need through notes. Then, I like for them to practice and learn on their own. I try to give them interesting or fun assignments, not just fill in the blank worksheets. I also have a fake pet lizard named Leonard. He comes to school with me, and the kids really like him. They always want him to sit by them. It's a good incentive.
