TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi, I'm Amy. After teaching grades 4-8 for more than 20 years, I now homeschool my own child. I am certified in elementary education, 1-12 social studies, middle school math, and a gifted endorsement.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to create engaging units that hook students into the learning. I love to integrate multiple disciplines together. When I create units, I make the assignments flexible so that students at any ability level can be successful!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I earned my National Board Certificate. Also, I have won numerous awards for integrating economics into the curriculum, as well as being named Florida Economic Teacher of the year. I was also selected to participate in a Fulbright group studies project to Bolivia and a NCEE study tour to Eastern Europe as well as Fulbright Memorial Scholar to Japan.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have an undergraduate degree in Sociology with minors in German and Spanish, as well as a n MEd in Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have many fond memories of school. My grandma taught elementary music, so I really grew up in a school and with many teacher family friend in a rural area. My sister now teaches music in Michigan, and my brother teaches high school. I have a huge curiosity about the world, and it is my passion to teach my students more about other cultures. Although my family lived in the same area for generations, my dad would often pack us up and take us on the road - even if we had to sleep in the car. As a high school student, I went abroad as an international exchange student and the rest is history. I have lived in South America, Europe, and the Middle East, where I met my Tunisian husband.
