For Educators


I saw this picture the other day and it really made me think. I knew I wanted to share some of the successful teaching strategies I have used to benefit my fellow educators and their students. By no means do I consider myself an expert teacher, but I do work very hard to be the best I can be each day for my students. I facilitate a student-centered classroom with an emphasis on collaboration. I believe that when we share ideas we all gain from the experience. With that value in mind, I would like to share with you some of the strategies, tips, and tricks that I use each day to create positive and meaningful learning experiences for my students.

I’ve organized this information into 4 categories. Click any of the links under the headings for more information. Please feel free to leave comments on your own attempts with that specific strategy so that others may learn and benefit from your experience. This page and information is a work in progress so please contact me if there is a specific topic you would like me to include sooner rather than later.
