I have been teaching since 1993. Over the course of that time I have taught Math/Science Core at a middle school, World History to 7th graders, American History to 8th graders, Teen Issues, and math lab. After 15 years at Hanshaw Middle School in Modesto CA, I made the move to Enochs High School. I currently teach AP Psychology, and CP Psychology (11th and 12th grades) at Enochs High School in Modesto CA, and have been doing so since 2009. I am currently (2/5/16) the ONLY full time Psychology teacher in my district!! That makes me more rare than librarians....
Mostly direct instruction across the board, with tons of activities in my Psychology classes. I used to use tons of technology at the Jr. High level since as a Title 1 school we had a lot of access to technology. I still use it as much as possible My attitude is that I want my kids DOING Psychology as much as possible, whether in the lab or in the "real world."
Can't say I have ever been honored but I was featured in a district newsletter for my work with resource students. I have had people tell me for years that my curriculum was great and that I should sell it...well, here it is...as of 03/09/17, I have had $3505 in sales so I guess they were right...:)
