"My older brother has learning disabilities that required our family to be creative in our approaches to learning and showing understanding of a topic. I also truly enjoy igniting the love of learning in my students, teaching is my calling.
I feel more connected to my families working in the virtual world than I did in my many years in brick and mortar. I am "in" families homes on an almost daily basis. I try to give the students time to socialize right before and after LiveLesson. I also use different methods for grouping them during the lesson that encourages them to talk/type to each other and contribute to our discussion.
