I have been teaching for 12 years. My experience includes 1st grade, 4th grade, middle school (6th-8th), and technology.
I believe that active learning is the key to happy, motivated, and challenged students. I use a lot of technology in the classroom, including my Smart Board, wireless slate, and class set of Senteo clickers. I also use interactive notebooks and foldables.
