I've worked as a full-time classroom teacher for the last 7 school years. For the first 5 years, I worked in middle school, and the last two years have been spent teaching art to high school. I student taught during college and worked as a classroom paraprofessional for a year in an elementary school.
I would categorize my teaching style as Activity-Based. I do like an organized classroom with set rules and limits. I believe classroom rules are in place so students can remain safe and classroom procedures are in place to run the class smoothly. I believe students learn best by discovery with gentle guidance.
