I had that ONE class; we all know it, where you feel like all you do is discipline. I remember one day reflecting on this one class thinking about how all I did was tell them what NOT to do, and had not given any positive things to focus toward. I

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience includes years of substituting before finally making the plunge into teaching full time. 1 year of 6-7 ELA, 1 year of 9 ELA and 1 year of 10 Introduction to Literature. Then my profession turned more into what I like to call a Personal English Language Trainer, staying at home with my newborn daughter.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is one that is fairly laid back and allows for creativity. I give students guidelines, yet leave areas that are opened so that a student can use what they are comfortable with to demonstrate to me that they have a proficient understanding of the material. For example in my lit class all final assignments had a writing component and one creative component. I believe the combination helped me to see more clearly if the students understood what we discussed, and it made grading more fun. I’ve had students turn in watercolor paintings to iMovies they created; their creativity never ceases to amaze me. In my classroom a student's character also takes precedence over a check list of material to be learned. This is one main reason I love teaching literature. It is an opening into many conversations with young people about how they intend on living in this world.
