I have had the opportunity to teach kindergarten, 3rd grade, 5th grade science/ss/math, and 6th grade math. I am currently teaching 6th grade math...my favorite experience so far!
I am a visual learner and that is the way I teach my students. I use the Promethean board on a daily basis. I love to incorporate music, comics, and videos to help my students grasp the concept being taught. I am also a firm believer in drill and practice to help concepts "stick" with my students. I try to add a bit of humor (sometimes corny) to help get the point across.
