Veteran Science and Math Teacher with more than 20 years of experience

Methodology

I used a variety of teaching methods and strategies to keep the students engaged and interested in the lesson. I plan my lessons to integrate students' interests and aiming to meet their individual needs. Visualization, inquiry-based instruction, small groups activity, differentiation, lots of practice and feedback have proven very useful to me..
