I believe that a teacher must be cognizant of the basic modalities of learning, whether it is verbal, kinesthetic, auditory, or visual. Students learn better when the material is presented in multiple ways and it takes a lot of time and commitment to present the topics in a manner in which all students can feel comfortable with. Besides, it’s much more fun to teach this way!
I went on to take many additional courses and attended many seminars, eventually became certified in all subjects in grade PreK-8th grade, adding to my initial biology certification for grades 9-12. I also have a reading endorsement certification for grades 6 – 12.
I am passionate about health and fitness, so I do yoga every morning and work out at least 5 days a week. I also have a small studio, where I make unique sculptures out of natural materials.
