I teach culturally and linguistically diverse first graders whose needs are all over the map.
I like to make learning accessible to all learners regardless of their needs and/or styles. Hands on activities, movement, and collaborative activities are hugely incorporated into my instruction. I also am a big believer in graphic organizers for collecting information and providing students with visuals whenever possible.
T.H.E.O. Award (if that counts) -- Basically the equivalent of an "Oscar" at our school, and something that is given through student nominations
