I have been teaching for 7 years. This is my second career. Before I was a teacher, I did marketing for a nursing home. I'm the Business/Technology teacher at a smaller high school. My main goal is to teach so that my students are prepared for the "real" world. I do a variety of demonstrations, one-on-one, students teaching other students and group work.
I teach 80 minute periods and I have my students moving at least 3 different times during their class. Depending on the day, their activities vary. I do brain teasers to help them think "outside of the box", games or team activities to get them use to working with others, public speaking to get them prepared for presentations in my class and other classes, and time to get their assignments done in the classroom.
