I am an Elementary Math Facilitator (K-5). I also conduct staff development sessions for math for my district. What can I say? I love MATH!
From what I researched, I really don't fall into one set category. I don't think any good teacher would follow just one type of teaching. Teaching varies upon students and content. I find myself mostly using what is described as the personal model and the guided discovery model blended together. Students start off by problem solving and then I use their ideas to lead into minilessons, guided activities, and independent activities.

I love to teach; however, I find the "planning" of a unit of study the most enjoyable. Yes, I know. You are saying, "YUCK!" I enjoy thinking through the steps that the brain will make to easily connect to prior learning. I use the Backwards Design method of planning lessons. I start with the goals in mind, and work my way through every step the brain must make before reaching comprehension, application and higher level thinking skills. I hope you enjoy the products that I make. Please let me know if there is something out there you want me to "plan".
