Frequently Asked Questions.
What's On Your Mind?
Need to find answers to some frequently asked questions or do you have one or two of your own questions?
I believe that it's very important that my visitors have the opportunity to ask their questions, provide their comments and opinions, and talk about their experiences.
With that in mind I've created this page that covers questions that are frequently asked.
Ask your questions and I will provide my suggestions based on some of the teaching strategies that I have used over the past 33+ years as an elementary school teacher, mentor to young teachers and student teacher supervisor.
I also invite other teaching professionals to write about some of the teaching strategies that they have used. Then if I feel that it would be of value to my visitors, I'll be happy to add to my site, giving you credit as well if you wish.
If you have a teaching strategy that you would like to share please
submit your teaching strategy here.
As we share our experiences with teaching professionals around the globe, we will be helping new and inexperienced teachers become more successful and motivated teachers as they come to realize what a wonderful and rewarding profession, teaching is.
