Yes, I was an elementary school teacher . How did you ever guess. I do love to make flash cards. The good news is you don't have to memorize these for a test.
What I have learned so far:
Visual images have more impact than words. I enjoyed playing "school teacher". In my first career of teaching school I always tried to make concepts as concrete as possible because I had learning issues and when I was young my teachers got frustrated with me and would always talk louder until I felt like I was being yelled at. I never wanted to do that to somebody else. It is not helpful . It is better to "show" than "tell" . If you can.
I am a watercolor artist, coach and author. You can contact me for lessons on and off line here.
