TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 8 years, always grade one, always at a Catholic elementary school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

A mix of whatever works for the current class. I prefer small group work, collaborative thinking and promoting independence. I like kids to discover the rule taught after observation.
