TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent the last 8 years teaching at-risk teenagers at a small urban school in San Antonio, Texas. Working at a small charter school for those years, I found that many curriculum units did not meet my students' needs, interests, or even our 9-week semesters. So, I learned to create my own projects, assessments, scoring rubrics, and more. My Bachelor's degree is in English, but I have a Master of Science degree in Education/ Curriculum and Instruction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Be flexible, and don't stop until you find what works. I remember spending hours and hours on a lesson, only to have my students' attitudes make it clear within just a few minutes that they weren't interested in doing it. It took years of experience, (and later, research for my Master's degree) for my learn how important it is to consider your students' needs when designing lessons, activities and assessments. So, my bottom line is, be flexible, and be willing to honestly reflect on things when they don't "work" out right.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was Teacher of the Year for my school in 2006; I was Teacher of the Month in January of 2009; and I was Chairperson of the English Language Arts Dept from 2005-2009.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts, English -University of North Texas Master of Science, Education/ Curriculum and Instruction - Capella University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a STRONG believer in having a balance of personal and professional life, which is why I love the idea of www.teacherspayteachers.com. Education should feel like a team effort, and we should be willing to share resources, at minimal cost to others. I know I would not have survived my first year of teaching without the help and guidance of others.
