TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching 7th and 8th grade English for the past 12 years, and I've been in the same district for over 20. The first year I taught, I experienced the culture shock of jumping from a half-time position teaching 12th grade to a full-time position in 3rd grade. The fact that I survived the transition proved to me that teaching was what I was meant to do in life. I have loved every minute of it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to be the teacher I would want my own children to have. That means differentiating instruction and challenging students at every ability level. It also means being interesting! Teaching is 3/4 theater. Finally, it all comes down to demonstrating respect for students and appreciating them for who they are right now. As teachers, the promise of the future is in our hands. I try to remember that every single day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Although I am honored to be the recipient of honors and awards from my school district, my most cherished "trophy" is a battered, second-hand binder filled with letters and poems from thankful students and parents. That binder is precious to me and never fails to warm my heart.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My master's degree is from Stony Brook University, and I am certified to teach English 7-12 and Elementary Education N-6.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I'm not writing or teaching, I love to play tennis, read, and travel with my family.
