I have been teaching since 2005 at different primary levels in Trinidad and Tobago. I love to express my creativity in the classroom; if I'm having fun, then it makes learning fun for my students. My secret formula is having a positive classroom environment, a lot of humor and an infectious smile! Teaching allows me to experience the joys of seeing the world through a child's eyes.
I use art, humor and hands-on activities as much as possible. Students appreciate the creativity, it grabs their attention. It also helps them to remember what they learned in the long term. My visual learners 'see' the concepts from abstract topics through my artistic representations that are integrated into all of the content areas that I teach.
Yet to be added
B. Ed degree specializing in primary education.
I believe that teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. See my teaching blog at http://mscraftynyla.blogspot.com for more stuff and freebies!
