Lesson Plans

Sharing our Knowledge;

~ As I move into my last year of education classes and closer to the real classroom, I have developed various lesson plans in my core studies and Ed. psychology classes. Teaching is a professional art that requires plenty of trial and error, collaboration with para-educators, and sharing of knowledge and resources. Feel free to modify or retrieve ideas from my lessons below~.
