Welcome and Introduction
Welcome to my Whole Brain Teaching blog. I have just finished my 8th year of teaching at the intermediate (3-4-5) level. Currenly I teach 4th Grade math and science and I discovered Whole Brain Teaching in December 2010. I started using Class-Yes, Teach-Okay, and the first two levels of the scoreboard because I had an extremely high achieving but very challenging group. The kids loved it and using it made a huge difference. I decided that I needed to go ahead and dive in to this and learn all I could! I started downloading the materials, I put in Super Speed Math, and I watched a lot of video on YouTube! At the end of the year, I sent more students to the "End of Year Multiplication Fact Party" than any other teacher! I was sold and had to get more involved...so next week, I'll be driving myself and paying my own way to Pineville, LA to the WBT National Teacher Conference! I can't wait to meet Mr. Biffle and his staff, and learn all that I can about this revolutionary teaching methodology and classroom management system!
