How do I approach teaching?: In a classroom, the students’ academic, social, mental, and emotional well-being must come first. I believe that  a student must feel comfortable when in their classroom, and I strive to make that possible every day! Learning should be differentiated to meet the needs of all students. Various learning styles and methods are used in my classroom to make the learning experience as inclusive as possible.
