14 years as a (elementary/primary) classroom teacher. 4 years as a substitute/relieving teacher, all grades, all year levels, all subjects.
Guided discovery. I like to set students up with resources and information to move from one 'station' to the next in their train ride of learning. With their 'bags packed' they can explore and discover for themselves their own learning, all along a guided track I have formed to lead them to the real learning I want them to know.
It is an honor to hear of ex-pupils getting their doctorates...and have their parents tell you that you were part of that!
