After teaching fifth grade in Gwinnett County Public Schools for the last fourteen years, I moved to a small, private school in the countryside of Bethlehem, Georgia. I am currently the middle/high school Media Specialist and provide Tech Ed support for students and staff. Now I get to do the "fun stuff" all the time with my students and colleagues - love the differences in learning at such a variety of ages.
I am a hands-on, get your feet wet and your hands dirty kind of learner. I want my students to 'experience' that kind of learning too. I hope there is never an average day in my classroom. I think students learn best when teachers teach across the curriculum, encouraging and expecting students to be involved in their own learning process.
