I've taught for over twenty five years in elementary grades. My first ten years was first through third. I obtained my masters in ESL Education from TCU and became the ESL Specialist at our school. I was later Instructional Specialist for five years and taught RTI intervention. My experience in helping students who speak another language and RTI Interventionist has lead me on a journey to make products for children.
I believe in making connections with students so they have meaningful experiences to increase schema and view of the world. Knowing a student's learning style can help them discover their link to learning. For example some students are global learners and process information better by putting pieces inside the big picture. Right brain visual learners enjoy creating to understand with meaning. When teachers realize we learn in different ways it opens a whole new world of teaching.
