I have been working with students my whole life. I started out as a peer tutor, which grew my love of teaching. My professional career has been dedicated to working with students. I have worked as an onsite supervisor for and elementary aged daycare program for 12 years, a 1st grade teacher, 6th and 7th grade science teacher, and an 8th grade math and algebra teacher.
In my classroom, I used a flex style of blended learning. This means that I create and record all of my lessons for my students. Students then access the videos, take notes, practice, and do an exit ticket, for each lesson at their own pace. While students are doing this, I am working with small groups, doing individual conferencing, and providing immediate feedback. My classroom also has flexible seating. Options range from standard school desks and chairs to floor options, standing options, and many chair options.
