TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 12th year teaching English and 8th year with journalism. I have experience at the middle school, high school, and college level. Rural and suburban. Regular, honors, and inclusion. I also teach Prek-k in Children's Church and K-2 in Awanas!! So my range is very wide. To me, my job is about teaching students to see, make, and appreciate real-world connections. The world around them is full of opportunity, and I want them to notice that and seize it. In addition to all this... I have worked as a common core ELA training specialist. My store is geared directly to helping teachers integrate common core in their classrooms smoothly and effectively. Most everything, as well, has been tested in my classroom with a variety of students, so I am confident that these products work!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Engaging, student-centered, hands-on, critical thinking. I believe all my products are user friendly, keeping the student and teacher in mind. Fun, innovative, standards-driven secondary English teacher I have three cardinal rules in my class that govern my teaching and student learning and behavior in my class: #1) Own it. Whatever we are doing and from bell to bell, students must take ownership and be accountable. I do the same. #2) Be aware of your surroundings. Don't just let life pass you by without noticing! The date is posted on the board, why ask? There is a back to the worksheet - did you look? The answer is in the text - did you read it? Always checked in - always alert! #3) Make a way - not an excuse.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Photography is my hobby - and my passion. Two of my photographs of "pageant girls" have won Most Photogenic! I have also been awarded Honorable Mention by TN Home and Farm Magazine for one of my submissions. Recently I won the American Experience Category in a local Cultural Photography contest as well! I am also VERY proud for my yearbook staff who has been awarded with an Honorable Mention from Jostens in the Creative Spreads category in 2010. We have also been featured in Jostens's Lookbook twice for creative covers and spreads. I had the personal honor of being 2013 PCHS Teacher of the Year.
