11 Years in the inner city Tampa Schools
I am an out of the box style teacher who uses many different styles to get to as many students as possible to buy into the classes. I use a fake monetary system that the students can buy things and/or use for extra credit, as well as sometimes get themselves out of trouble by bribing me to remove it from money they make from lessons and contests and grades. All of it is used in correlation in most of the lessons involved, helping create a classroom of rapport and rigor.
