Junior High, High School and College experience in various Massachusetts locale AND since retirement teaching elementary school and then at a local college and their graduate school!!
My classroom is student centered and ACTIVE: students are constantly working with other students, moving about and USING the language they are learning... and most importantly understanding that KIDS ARE PEOPLE, TOO!!
