I teach fifth and sixth in the Indianapolis Public Schools. It’s challenging, but I really love working with the kids. It will come to no surprise that my teaching approach focuses on developing students be creative. independent and to make stuff.
My program, the Key Learning Community, focuses on helping students to find their strength areas and the areas that they find motivating. When students are aware of these things they can use their strengths to support their learning in other areas and (hopefully) be successful empowered citizens.
I blog about that, too. Take a look. It’s really important to the kids that folks know what they are doing and (more importantly) give them some feedback.
We’re doing some pretty cool stuff!
