TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my 10th year of teaching in a Title One School. I have taught just about every level and grade of English 9th-12th grade as well as AP Literature and Creative Writing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

If you were to peek into my classroom, you would see organized chaos: students engaged in lively discussion, colorful construction paper adorning the walls with declarations of who my students know themselves to be, flourishes of writing, ideas, stories, arguments, and the essence of a genuine joy of learning. Although, while I like to think of it as organized chaos, at times it might appear to just be actual chaos. I have been teaching English for the past nine years at a Title One school in my hometown; and, at times, it can get messy. Actually, the best days are when it gets messy. Those are the days when I believe students learn best. Among the chaos, they can think more critically, openly express their thoughts and opinions, and get wrapped up in learning about the material, themselves, and the world they live in. I am of the philosophy that students must get a little messy and a little confused to truly allow themselves to learn. I believe my job is to guide and encourage them to learn about themselves to prepare them for their lives outside the classroom. I think that the best way to do this is through literature, writing, and self-discovery. The best tools I can give them as an educator go beyond reading and writing. Developing their ability to think critically and effectively express themselves is paramount in striving to reach their highest potential. I truly believe that higher expectations and greater demands on critical thinking fosters higher learning. As an educator, it is my job to provide a safe, comfortable, rigorous, and inspiring classroom. I believe it is my duty as a teacher to ensure each student has the opportunity to rise beyond the standard. Setting expectations, instilling a sense of responsibility, building trust, and remaining consistent in your words and principles provides students with the best environment for limitless, profound learning. So, if you were to peek into my classroom, you will find students learning, debating, articulating, communicating, and engaging in literature and writing. You will also find students who understand the importance of a deadline and who have a deep respect for learning. My educational philosophy boils down to inspiring students to acquire a joy for learning, while also preparing them to become well-rounded, active citizens of the world.
