Mrs. Brown, Amber
I am an 12th year educator at Red Oak ISD. I love expanding my students' views beyond the geographic boundaries of their city, state and country. The world is big! But with the advancement of technology we are definitely a global society where the saying the old saying "It's a small world after all" is becoming more and more evident every day. I see it as my mission, duty, and purpose to prepare our youth to be competitive contributors to a world that is vastly different than what we were used to in the olden days!
Warning: I'm not like the teacher you had when you and I were kids. I don't follow a textbook and I don't give out worksheets for homework. In my class, we are project and research based and I challenge my students to question, explore, find answers on their own, create, share, and publish their findings while I facilitate that process. My class is designed for the 21st century learner and hopefully I will be able to teach them more than just geography and world cultures, but that they will learn skills necessary to be able to "learn how to learn", to grow to be able to become leaders and producers, and global citizens of the world.
