I love to learn. I have taught elementary through high school and my aim is always to have as much fun as possible while doing it. My fuse is long and my sense of humor, excellent.
While teaching elementary science we raised butterflies from pupae. We made models of atoms from marshmallows and toothpicks (and ate them). We danced the three states of matter.
I taught elementary phonics by writing little songs so my students could remember the correct sound by singing.
My high school special education students studied biology through art. We learned cartooning and illustrated our understanding of the human ear by drawing Rube Goldberg devices. We built models of the human heart and lungs using balloons and 2 liter bottles. We studied parts of cells by decorating cookies.
Hands on, fun and often delicious, learning is something to participate in, not just listen to.
