I graduated from Saint Louis University in 2010 and started subbing at a large, public school. After a small hiatus, I am now teaching at a small, urban district right outside St. Louis.
I prefer to be the "Guide on the Side" rather than constantly being at the center of the class. I tend to design activities that the students can muddle through with assistance from peers and myself, rather than lecturing. In fact, last year, I only gave 1 day of notes.
