I will start my 6th year of teaching in the fall of 2016. My teaching experience is as follows: 7th Grade (3 years), 9th Grade (1 year), 10th Grade (3 years), and 12th Grade (2 years). All in all, I have a lot more to learn and each year is a great learning experience...
My teaching philosophy is simple. Every child can be taught, and it is up to the educator to find proper motivation for learning through various strategies, methods, and/or approaches.
