My name is Sierra, and I am a college junior working on my bachelor's degree in mild to moderate special needs. I believe students need to be engaged and active in their learning, even if it means being physically active in their learning, in order to best retain what they are learning. As a student, I will do as much as I can to show you what I am learning about, straight from the college classroom and my observations from other classrooms.
I believe in letting students struggle with concepts for a little bit rather than giving them the answers right away, extended "think time," and finding ways to get and keep all students engaged in the content that I am providing.
