My teaching style is to make education as enjoyable as possible. A hands on approach keeps students engaged and actively participating in most lessons.
I have a hybrid that includes early on direct instruction from a personal model perspective. In the beginning of the year I lead by example. I demonstrate to the students the procedures required to be successful in class. As the year, passes I begin to add more inquiry based learnijng stragaties where the student can explore and activilty participate in the learning process. I also like to add cooperative learning strategies where students with work together in the learning process on special projects.

Modeling and scaffolding.
My teaching style is that anyone can learn everything. That you are never too old, dumb, athletic, popular, or outdoorsy to learn something new. I also work on trying to make everything relatable to their lives. Because if you can't relate the subject to their everyday lives what is the point of them retaining the information.
