TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a 6th grade teacher for over a decade! I have taught in both elementary schools and middle schools. My main goal as a teacher over the years has been to send my students off with a love of learning. I often tell them to "Kiss Your Brain...It is working hard for you today!"

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that meaningful learning comes from a combination of explicit instruction, cooperative learning, the gradual release of responsibility, and most importantly continual and constructive feedback of student work. Lessons and units should be student-centered, and should be able to be accessed by students from anywhere! This is why I am a fan of Sway, a presentation tool from Office 365. I can email my students these presentations and they can access them from anywhere, and complete lessons at their own pace!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master Degree in Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

One thing that I LOVE to do is create comprehensive and interactive units. I like to think about the group of students that I have, what I need to teach, and how it can best be taught and then create a unit with those 3 elements in mind. I have had great success with my units and find that my students both enjoy and learn from each one!
