TEACHING EXPERIENCE

18-19 will be my 8th year teaching! 1 year at an alternative education program 6 years inner city ranging from learning support to AP and IB I love the fact that I've been able to teach both 9th grade and 12th grade. In my 9th grade course, I focus on two "learning paths:" the first being a student and the second being content with the vision of what I need my students to be when they return to me as a senior. Because of my distinguished ratings over the last four years, I will be hosting my first student teacher and I'm SO looking forward to this experience!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Inquiry based instruction Discussion based lecture Project based learning However, the most important classroom "style" or strategy is relationship building with students; they need to understand that you're there for more than just curriculum. "You never teach a child a subject, you always teach a child. You teach children in a way that they will learn, and then things will fall in place for them." --Dorothy Height
