Secret Strategies that Work

Secret Strategies of Learning

As I mentioned in my about me page, I have personal history with learning disabilities.  I refuse to believe that any child cannot learn and have a successful academic career.  As a matter of fact, I have proven this time and time again over my past 25+ years as a teacher.

Our brains are naturally curious and need to know why things work the way they do.  As a teacher, I strive to satisfy that need to understand by providing strategies for children, parents, and their teachers.

Through the years I developed a ton of strategies.  When in class I call each strategy a “Super Secret Strategy”.  It makes the kids sit up a bit straighter and pay attention a bit more closely.

I have strategies for adding & subtracting numbers, for reading fluently, for multiplication, and for reading comprehension.  I have strategies for division, for understanding sentence structure, for algebra, and much more.  My calling is to help people.  That is why I am writing this blog.

I hope you will join me on this journey.

Have a fantastic day – Brian McCoy
