I have taught for 6 years. I taught 6-8th grade ELA/Social Studies, 4 and 5th grade self contained (every subject), 5th grade ELA/SS, and 5th grade Math/Science.
I try to use a variety of teaching styles in order to reach students and create the best learning environment. However, during the first part of the year I use more of the directing style. In the middle part of the year I rely more on the discussing style. In the latter part of a semester I generally lean more heavily on the delegating style. Using an appropriate mix of teaching styles helps students learn, grow, and become more independent. T
The biggest honor and award is the appreciation I receive from my colleagues, administration, parents, and most importantly students.
I graduated from National Louis with a MAT in education.
