I have more than twenty five years experience as an educator. I'm currently enrolled in a MSc Information Studies (Library Science) program in Singapore. I have worked in self-contained special education environment, as a teacher trainer in the US Peace Corps, a language arts and science teacher in upper elementary, and a teacher librarian.
I have a very eclectic teaching style that has arisen over the years working in special needs, language immersion, and EFL environments. Students should be given plenty of opportunity to think and problem solve. I view the role of the teacher as more of a facilitator who guides students down a path toward knowledge. The best learning results in something being created; be it a piece of writing, an illustrative diagram, a short video or even a simple drawing.
I won a stuffed animal from one of those UFO catcher machines one time. Does that count?
