I have been teaching for 12 years in North Carolina. Throughout my tenure, I have taught mostly math and mostly in 7th grade. However, I have spent some years teaching two subjects, and some years in 6th and 8th grade. Currently I am teaching 8th grade Math 1 and Science.
I believe in giving the students some direct instruction, but then letting them go to see what they can accomplish. I also believe in teaching the students conceptually rather than just learning algorithms. We break down each concept into the why rather than just the how. I incorporate technology as much as possible as well as project based learning.
