My teaching style is student centered and encourages interaction. A variety in lesson activities is important to keep students motivated. I also usually in constant motion, so I can monitor student behavior and assess their understanding of the lessons concepts. I believe science is a way of knowing how things apply to our lives, so I try to bring science to life through stories, everyday examples from my life. Students are good teachers as well, and are able to "teach" or reteach ideas and concepts to their peers more effectively than I in some cases. Students teach each other through class discussions and exploratory laboratory activities. Is that OK, or too wordy?
