I learned a lot from my fellowship, but teamwork and problem solving are the two biggest things I’m taking back to the classroom. My experience at Keihin opened my eyes to the importance of being a team player and being able to problem solve.
The possibilities are endless with being a team player and problem solver. I am going include some STEM projects throughout the year. These will help my students grow so much in these two important life skills.
I’m going to make sure my lessons have areas of teamwork and problem solving. I also want to make my students at least try to solve a problem. It is so easy to just give them the answer since they are so young, but problem solving is a life-long skill they need.
I’m looking forward to implementing my new style of teaching!
