"I learned early on, that what really stayed with me or turned me on were project-based activities. I can still remember, in 5th grade, drawing the inner workings of a flower and labeling the parts, instead of just looking at a picture in a textbook. Teaching has always been a creative outlet for me and I carry that through in my approach to instruction. Technology has and will continue to be a primary motivation for children and therefore it is one of the most effective tools in today's educational landscape."
