I taught for seven years in public school, alternating between 4th and 5th grade. I taught grades 6-8 for one year in a private school. I have one year of experience in the self contained classroom, three years teaching math & science, and four years teaching only science. I am currently a math instructional coach at an elementary school.
I believe children learn by doing. They need to work collaboratively to solve problems. They should be able read critically and explain their thinking orally and in writing. They need to utilize available technology to learn information and demonstrate what they know. The teacher should be a facilitator that guides instruction and plans engaging activities.
