I am teaching my 16th year, all of which have been 6th or 7th grade. I have taught all core content, but math has been my specialty as I have taught that each year.
I like to use a variety of teaching stategies to teach. I don't want to get bored either! I use typical notes pages, teacher directed instruction, cooperative learning activities, manipulatives, and whatever else feels right for the concept.
