TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my tenth year as a teacher. I taught for two years at a charter school, where I had several different preps ranging from 7th grade social studies, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th grade language arts. I had no classroom of my own, so I became organized pretty quickly! I currently teach 8th grade English and Social Studies for Bloomfield Hills Public Schools, and I really enjoy both my students and colleagues, with whom I frequently collaborate to create interdisciplinary units.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in teaching the basics, but my passion is developing intellectual character and creating opportunities for students to problem-solve and apply what they know to real life. I want all of my students to succeed, and I believe in flexibility and differentiation. I love this profession and despite it's challenges, there isn't anything else I'd rather do.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I think this site is great and I love that the proceeds from each purchase I make goes to another teacher! I've gotten some fantastic materials from teachers on this site; it's a truly powerful blend of collaboration and social networking.
