MY TEACHING STYLE

I've always considered my teaching style to be more of a "hands-on" learning approach. I enjoy working with students when they have the ability to "create" and discover, all the while using their higher level thinking abilities. Most of my resources are created for students who are working at a higher level, due to the nature of my job.
