I am veteran teacher with 25 years experience. I have worked in the same rural school in a small town for 20 years.
My classes are literacy-based, brain-based and involve movement, role play, and the use of manipulative objects and props. I do not use my textbook much but prefer using good literature. Despite being a content area teacher, I use many reading strategies especially for students who are struggling with comprehension or are in special ed. I have a very "hands-on" approach to learning and always look for new ways to reach those students.
