8 years as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, new-teacher mentor, and grade level chair in urban schools. I mostly taught social studies and reading in middle school and high school, but have also dabbled in elementary school and math.
My Recipe: high expectations, clear directions, active modeling, and ample opportunities for practice and feedback.
