TEACHING EXPERIENCE

5th year teacher. Nominated for the ISTE Outstanding Young Educator award. I mentor Mock Trial and Stock Market Club. Member of Kappa Delta Pi and Phi Alpha Theta.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach at a school that is very technologically advanced. Each student in my grade has an iPad, as do the teachers. Many of my lessons involve using their iPads and specific apps on their iPad. I also incorporate a lot of writing into my class, including DBQs, short response questions, extended response questions and cause and effect essays. The best thing I was ever told about teaching history is to make students "feel" it and that is the goal I have with each assignment.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I teach at a National Blue Ribbon school that has also been awarded the Golden Apple award for the past twenty years. Our school has also recently been named an Apple Distinguished School. I am a current nominee for the 2015 ISTE Outstanding Young Educator Award.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my bachelor's in secondary education and history and I'm endorsed to teach 6-12. I also have my LBS1 endorsement.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Music and movie aficionado, voracious reader of historical fiction.
