I teach this strategy in my second grade classroom.  I have the students break the numbers into what is called expanded form like this.

18 + 21  would be rewritten as 10 +8 and 20 + 1   Then the students would add up the tens numbers of 10 + 20=30  Then they would add the ones numbers of 8+1=9  And then they could add 30 +9=39

Although this may seem cumbersome to you it is a helpful strategy for student because they can see all the numbers easily. It shows the place value of the numbers in a way that the traditional way doesn't.  It is also a great strategy for advanced students that can start doing these in their heads.

I tell my students and parents that I want to teach many different methods of solving problems so students have an arsenal to use when solving problems.  I also teach the traditional borrow and carry method that most parents are familiar with (it is called regrouping now.)

I am teaching the same strategy to my kids, this helps them to find sums easily and faster. I am agree when you say that it is good to teach them an aresenal of methods and they choose the one that is easier for each one.
