TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught English to Middle School students in grades 6 through 8 for six years. Out of those six years I was the English department head for two and trained teachers on the new Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge requirements, TAKS testing, creative writing and reading comprehension skills.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a progressive educator. I believe in attending to the whole child, that learning isn’t something that happens to individual children — separate selves at separate desks. Children learn with and from one another in a caring community, and that’s true of moral as well as academic learning. I believe that collaborative learning environments work best. I believe in social justice and this creates a safe learning environment as well as an open mind. I believe that intrinsic motivation inspires learners and fosters a continual learning and self improvement versus short term. Progressive educators take their cue from the children — and are particularly attentive to differences among them. And I believe that not all children are the same but they all have the potential to succeed. The ability to be versatile is crucial to my teaching style.
