April has 3 big dogs and 2 small dogs. Each dog has 4 paws. How many paws are there in all?
First, we need to find out how many dogs April has altogether. April has 3 big dogs and 2 small dogs. That is 3 + 2, so April has 5 dogs altogether. If each dog has 4 paws, we can solve this in several different ways. We can skip count. We can use repeated addition. We can draw a picture to model the problem. Any of these ways would help us solve that 5 dogs with 4 paws each have 20 paws total. Our answer would be something like this: April's 5 dogs have 20 paws in all.

What are the key components in a lesson plan?
Some of the most important things to include in a lesson plan are the standards, objectives, vocabulary, introduction (engage background knowledge), mini-lesson, workshop/practice, higher-order thinking questions and evidence of learning. Not all lesson plans will look the same, but several of these components are recurrent throughout all subjects.
What is your philosophy on education?
I believe that students need someone who they can trust. When a student feels cared for and has their basic needs met, they will be able to learn. A student that does not feel safe and loved will not have the right mindset to learn and grow!
