MY TEACHING STYLE

Drama and middle school are synonymous. Walk down a hallway and you can hear and see the unscripted ‘drama’ in full production. My teaching style uses the innate abilities of middle school students’ propensity for drama and channels it into learning how to effectively and respectfully communicate. They pay attention to and practice their communication skills: facially, word choice, tone, and body language. Students are given the chance for a ‘do-over’; a way to express themselves that will not offend another student or Teacher. In the classroom, they constantly write and practice public speaking with the possibility and probability of the ever-present ‘do-over’.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My classroom is full of colorful pictures of butterflies that float around the room. In front of the window, a three-dimensional monarch flutters. A paper mache cocoon with a silk butterfly unfolds next to my desk. Butterflies illustrate grit as they emerge from their cocoon without any help. It is in that struggle they learn strength. This is what growing up is like and I'm reminded every day as I teach my students to advocate for their own education and themselves and in that they too embrace grit.
