I have been teaching for 14 years in two school districts. I started my career in the field of business including banking and insurance. I use skills in Instructional Design to write my activities and projects to reflect the real world of business in the classroom.
Simulation and project based learning. I model the business concepts taught in the classroom through implementation of hands on, relevant projects. I give students the opportunity to make connections outside of the classroom and encourage my students to take risks.
