From OpenContent Curriculum
As of this writing, I have finished four years teaching reading and writing, and some health in Shishmaref School.
After trying to keep 60 kids working on the same assignment, at the same time, at the same pace, while some came and went, I decided to abandon what I learned in lecture halls in college, and embrace the standards. I have writing students working on a multitude of writing assignments all at the same time. It requires more conferencing on my part, but it is a very freeing way of looking at teaching. This is especially true when I get a student who moves around a lot, or has sporadic attendance.
I am currently advising/involved with:
- Academic Decathlon
- Class advisor for the class of '09
- Battle of the Books
- Cheerleading Coach
