My email address is - email@example.com Throughout my teaching career, I have taught many students from many different backgrounds. I've taught Canadians, Americans, and Australians and what I've found is that each one of these kids needs to a) feel like they are important and what they say matters and b) what they are learning is applicable to the real world. I have done multiple Action Research projects which looked at technology in the classroom, the learning styles of boys vs. girls and how to improve engagement through a different approach to teaching.
I believe in an education based on applicability and engagement. I get my students involved in the learning process and this always brings them back for more. My assessments and instruction are based on current student interests and this drives their engagement in the material and desire to learn. Teaching needs to be about relating information but it's how you relate that information that matters. Throughout my education I have studied the means that best fits the different learning styles and genders and have tailored my lessons accordingly.
It's a great honor for me to be working with the leaders of tomorrow and if through my teaching, one student can gain a better appreciation for the world around them, I'm happy.

My email address is - firstname.lastname@example.org I can relate to my students because I was one not too long ago. I understand what interests them and how to get them excited about the material. My lessons are technology driven but can also be used in a non-technology setting. Visit me at web home - http://teachwithfergy.com
