About me


So important that both instructor and students collaborate on the learning models of this class 

communication is key as it helps both parties to maximize the learning tools to benefit the students so they stay on pace with the information dispensed.

Like any new learning tool you have to understand the core concepts and principles then be flexible to implement the teaching process.

really appreciating these new concepts of both being the teacher and student simultaneously.


Really enjoyed the different types of assessment modules that can be used for evaluating for the desired outcomes.

Believe it or not, many have similiar and a little above average test scores from the traditional way of testing which I have found very interesting. I also have them grade their own tests.

I also have random students write daily lesson… >>>
