I am a teacher who has demonstrator or personal model teaching style supervising a classroom that has an emphasis on demonstration and modeling. I have high expectations for myself as role model, guide and professional. I am very serious about helping students develop and apply both skills and knowledge. I show my students how to properly do a task or work through a problem and then I'll help them master the task or problem solution. It's important that my students can independently solve similar problems by using and adapting demonstrated methods. My students are expected to take some responsibility for learning what they need to know and for asking for help when they don't understand something.
