Mrs. Hulfachor believes that learning occurs when students develop their skills and talents through effort and persistence in a positive and encouraging environment. She uses multiple intelligence teaching methods to tap on the different strengths of each child while encouraging growth in developing areas. In my Spanish classes, we use all our senses to learn, we sing, dance, and play games to reinforce repetition and retention of concepts. Learning can be so much fun! During guidance opportunities, Mrs. Hulfachor, utilizes positive communication and engagement and promotes emotional intelligence. Her favorite educational quote is, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” by Benjamin Franklin.
