10 yrs in elementary/early childhood classrooms
I am a true believer in multiple teaching styles in the classroom. I always start in a whole group lesson then differentiate through my small group, independent work and centers. I love to teach using visual aids, hands on, songs...well seriously I will stand on my head and juggle if it gets the job done! My last biggie is making it FUN and making it MEANINGFUL. If my students can make a connection they will remember and retain.
