I'd like to think my style is my own. It is always evolving as I learn new things and as the world changes. I do incorporate a lot of technology into my class, but at the same time, I only use it if it will actually help my students. I place a great deal of emphasis in my classroom on each student discovering his/her own talents, abilities and learning styles. Once discovered, I then do my best to individualize lessons and activities, but also teach students how to adjust themselves. I believe this is an important concept for children to learn young to become life long learners.
