TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my eighth year of teaching, and I currently teach 7th grade humanities in Washington state. Curriculum design is one of my favorite parts of the job. Six years ago I redesigned our seventh grade humanities curriculum to change it from a chronological approach to a thematic approach, and I've been obsessively refining it ever since. I also started teaching some online high school courses last year, which has been a great experience for me!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Pedagogically speaking, I think I mix the innovative with the traditional. I use many creative ideas and approaches, but I also see the value in the occasional worksheet, or in having students memorize countries and capitals. As far as classroom management, well, I've heard kids say that I'm strict and mean, and I've heard kids say that I'm the nicest teacher ever, so I don't know what to tell you!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

One of my favorite parts of teaching is looking over my group of kids and seeing them completely engaged in their work. Not because they want an 'A,' not because they'll get in trouble if they don't work, but because they're truly interested in what they're doing.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.A. in Political Science (Social Studies Education minor) from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction (emphasis on Creative Arts in Learning) from Lesley University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I would LOVE any and all feedback from teachers who choose to use my products in their classrooms--even feedback on seemingly trivial aspects (for example, how much class time did it actually take vs. how much time I said it would take) would be very, very welcome. I'm kind of a perfectionist!
