TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have experience working as a resource teacher at an amazing charter school in St. Louis. Previously I have worked as a 3rd grade teacher in a K-5 building. Before that I worked in a 2nd grade classroom and have spent time working K-5 while earning my Masters degree in Elementary Education. I have worked with students with Autism one on one providing ABA therapy.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that as a teacher I am to facilitate a love of learning in my students as well as enthusiasm for the subject matter. As a facilitator i like to to focus on activities. This teaching style emphasizes student-centered learning and there is much more responsibility placed on the students. I like activities and lessons which necessitate active learning, student-to-student collaboration and problem solving. I also Like to serve as a model for my students both academically and though Character Education.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was honored as Fontbonne University's Outstanding Graduate Student 2011 in the field of Elementary Education.
