TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Currently, I am an elementary school principal, but previous to that I taught for 7 years from inner city middle to rural high school - all in the Algebra I curriculum. Through my experience, I have gained an appreciation for interactive, cooperative learning to keep students engaged in what can be a tricky, new subject to learn!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I LOVED to teach in the problem-based learning format. I feel it is very conducive to most learners. If I give notes, they last for ten minutes or less and then the students are working. I utilize a lot of centers, circuits, and hands-on activities in my classroom. I am also not above singing, rapping, and using hand motions to help my students remember concepts!
