TEACHING EXPERIENCE

30 years teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in Middle School.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Middle-schoolers, for the most part, are concrete sequential learners; they need to "see it to believe it." Science-based hands-on activities allow students to experience concepts difficult for them to grasp due to scientific language or ideas/parts that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Introducing concepts through hands-on activities and interdisciplinary activities has proven to be a valuable strategy for student success in my experience. Large group and small group (lab groups/pairs, for instance) are equally important and it was not my habit solely to sit students in front of the computer to interact with the computer, regardless of "the way of the future." Face-to-face interaction (student-to-student, student-to-teacher) teaches students how to communicate with others and allows students to explore, manipulate, and own the concepts taught.
