13 Years Teaching Experience at High-Achieving Public School in a district with a large ELL population.
Creativity and Imagination are key while still making sure concepts and skills are a strong and thorough foundation. I use differentiation, Blooms, and Multiple Intelligences routinely, Though I do believe in knowledge and grounding students in key concepts. The students then take the basics to the next level through higher level thinking and exploration of these concepts in ways they wish to explore. The students lead their own learning, and I as the teacher facilitate it.
