TEACHING EXPERIENCE

UC Berkeley Disabled Students Auxiliary, SDC teacher, Special Education Department Coordinator

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am an SDC teacher for grades 9-12 and have taught Life Skills for the last three years. As seniors, most of my students will either go to a junior/community college or enter the workforce. I believe vocational education cultivates a sense of autonomy among our youth in special education and brings them the confidence they need to pursue their first job. This is about livelihood and longevity. It is for these reasons that I am so passionate about creating and teaching the materials you see here in this store.

For as long as I can remember, I have been involved in the hiring and training of new employees. My work experience prior to teaching included many entry-level jobs: Jamba Juice, Dave and Buster's, Red Lobster, several college campus cafe's, and three late night bars. I believe that this experience, as exciting, enlightening, brutal, fast-paced, and humbling as it was, directly and inexplicably prepared me to become a vocational education teacher.

My position as Department Coordinator for the Special Education Department has also helped grow this unit, as I sit in on 30+ interviews each year. The materials you see here are a consolidation of this perspective, my life experiences, as well as a result of true trial and error lessons with my high school juniors and seniors. The lessons have come about organically, and the worksheets don't look like they come from a pre-canned unit. I think that students should recognize the fonts, and believe these worksheets were made specifically for them. I aim for a simple and direct style.

I strive to make my teaching materials first and foremost, RELEVANT. I believe that if students see the connection between the classroom and the real world, they are more compelled to listen and to understand. I like to integrate pop culture,"Kim Kardashian" and other icons whenever possible because pop culture is the dialogue of their generation and what they connect with the most. These references are constant alliances and gateways into my student's place in this world. They constantly open doors for me, and I hope they do the same for you.
