TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As a teacher for over 20 years, my goal has been to equip every student with the language art skills he or she needs, so he or she can find success in life, too. I know the power of a good teacher and that one word can alter a life forever. In high school, my motivation wasn’t as high as it should have been until a math teacher and a school counselor stepped in. With their specific attention, I not only turned around my high school career, but I also received a scholarship to go on to college. Though the act was probably routine for them, it was life-changing for me. Thanks to this teacher and school counselor, as well as, many other caring educators, I am not a statistic. I am a success.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In my opinion, the best way to teach any subject, but especially English, is to base the curriculum around student-centered assignments and activities. Without student buy-in, interest and motivation are often lost and learning ceases. Student inquiry is a terrific basis for reading and writing assignments and can lead to a final product that prepares students for college and/or career.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a Bachelor’s in Secondary English Education and a Master’s in School Counseling.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My teaching philosophy combines a priority of recognizing the value of each individual, a strong work ethic with a solid education and work experience that should fit nicely with a school’s commitment to student achievement and innovation. Teachers must use an extensive background of techniques and innovations as well and have a vested interest in each student’s success. I try to gear my resources toward student engagement and success. I'm constantly looking to create resources that are rigorous and relevant to student lives, while still covering standards.
