Hands on, kinesthetic learning and of course technology! I love to have my students dive in and experience what they're learning about instead of just working out of a workbook. They should experience life and learn along the way, not the other way around.

I am an enthusiastic teacher who loves technology! I believe kids should sing, dance, and be silly while they learn. They need to learn how to work together, build each other up, and help make the world a better place. These kids are going to shape the future; let's give them the right beginning!
