TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 4 years teaching experience teaching Kindergarten (which I love). I have also taught 7th grade Language Arts & middle school special education. I am not currently teaching this year (2012); however, I am getting to focus more time on things I love like, graphic arts & design.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use any and all teaching styles I can think of. I love variety and keeping an energetic pace in the classroom. If I am bored – then it must feel like death to a six year old child. I have implemented many teaching styles, but I really enjoy one that I came up with (I am sure this is not my idea alone) – outdoor instruction. I really enjoy moving my class to the field or courtyard outside on occasion. I find that this technique stimulates the advanced students in my class the most. Since my students are required to know letter sounds before they enter the program, I often have a small group of excelling students who get bored waiting for others to finish. I have observed that outside instruction removes feelings of confinement; however, these styles of teaching are not so effective for students with learning disabilities, or have a hard time staying on task. I would not recommend this teaching style as a daily routine.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I really believe most teachers would agree that the only awards and honors that really matter are the ones received from parents and students throughout the year. I often receive great letters of praise and encouragement from parents, telling me how much they appreciate what I am doing and what an impact I have been on their child. There is no greater feeling than to hear that your hard work is producing positive results, especially on the days I am feeling tired, drained, and overwhelmed. These are the awards that offer me the most encouragement and often serve as a reminder of why I am teaching (that is, because I want to get rich...ha ha).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have earned the following degrees: Associates in Mathematics & Science Associates in Social & Behavioral Science BA in English Masters in Education with duel certification in K-8 Elementary Education & K-12 Special Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I also work on graphic design (logos, stationary, app buttons, etc.) and I love web page design (let me know if you need help with your website). I am amazed by the creative talent that is displayed by teachers on this site! Teacher's Rock!
