It was my pleasure to teach for almost thirty-five years before retiring. My favourite classroom assignment was the two/three split.
I don’t have a catch word for my teaching style. I simply believe that my role as an educator is to provide a learning environment where each child feels safe to take risks with their learning. I tell students that it is my job to give them work that is “just right”. “Is it too hard, too easy, or just right”, I ask individuals every day and I design their work according to what they say.
