I believe that project based inquirey led learning is the best experience for our youth. I like my classroom talking. I love when my students enjoy walking into the classroom feeling comfortable to ask questions. In the age we are in we no longer need to memorize facts, we need to strengthen our ability to find and use tools. I have taught Mathematics for a decade and Computer Science for 6 years, both of these subjects can be terrifying or exciting, or even both! Offering our students high support and demanding high expectations leads to wonderful outcomes. As a math geek, I am always looking at my data to improve the experience in the classroom. Learning is fun.
