I use both the Whole Brain Teaching and RISE/TESS teaching methods in my classroom lessons. I believe in making students accountable for their learning. I attempt to reach a level of learning where students are able to teach one another what they've learned. I feel this is a true measure of comprehension. I also like having fun while I teach! My students know I may be tough and expect a lot, but it is only because I care about their brains!
Well... my mom thinks I'm #1! Receive the famous "Rookie of the Year" award from my current middle school last year for my efforts as a new teacher on campus. I've been a contestant on CMT's The Singing Bee during season 3! My kids got a kick out of that! It was an honor! (?)
