TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have PreK-6th grade experience. I have taught Kindergarten, Reading Recovery, Title I math and reading, 5th grade inclusion special education, and a multi-grade classroom of ELL students. I was also the overseer of my first school's special education department. My current position is K-6 Elementary Principal at two schools and district K-12 Special Education Director. I used to teach Asian students during the evenings, weekends, and summer. Using Skype and other online tools, I have taught students from age 6-20. It was an interesting experience! http://www.eleutian.com/qualify/registers/welcome I recently started as a professor for CE4Teachers. Come check us out! http://courses.ce4teachers.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style varies depending on the students in front of me. I try to use a lot of visuals, differentiated instruction, and centers whenever possible. My colleagues often joke that I have a work hard, play hard attitude. I'm the type who expects a lot of hard work from my students, but I will be the first to recognize that hard work and find a fun way to incorporate play into our day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The South Dakota Department of Education chose me to attend a national standard setting committee in New Jersey in February 2011. A panel of roughly 20 experts helped determine the new cut off scores for the next PLT Praxis exam. It was an honor to be chosen!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from undergraduate school in May 2007. After graduation I received a teacher certificate in Elementary and K-8 Special Education. I have a minor in Reading and Kindergarten education. I also have endorsements to teach Middle School Math, Reading/Language Arts, and Science. I can coach any sport in elementary and middle school and have a varsity basketball endorsement. Finally, I have a K-12 technology endorsement. In May 2009 I graduated with a K-12 Educational Administration degree. I am a trained Reading Recovery teacher. During the summer of 2010, I took certification coursework to become a Reading Specialist in the state of South Dakota. I want to get my doctorate in Reading someday!
