I've been an educator for ten years and am currently teaching fourth grade at a charter school in Southern California. We focus on centers and project-based instruction.
I love teaching mini-lessons with opportunities for high student engagement with each other. Beyond the mini-lesson, students break off into meaningful centers across core-curriculum areas and the centers are designed to meet their individual learning needs. One center always involves interaction with me for reteaching, extra practice or enrichment. I pride myself on infusing higher level thinking activities like essential questions into my lesson planning and am currently committed to #Do1ThingDifferently in my class with respect to integrating transformative technology into my lesson plans.
