Hello! After working as a long term substitute and a special education program assistant, I became a high school classroom teacher at a local charter school for 6 months. I then transferred to my corporation's middle school where I will soon be starting my 3rd full year. Between the personalities and the content, I have a great love for 8th-grade history.
I teach in a student centered fashion as a facilitator of learning. While I do not prefer to lecture, everyone knows that sometimes, history requires a lecture or two. When that happens, I always provide outlined notes for students to fill in while they are following along. Typically, students are given a task to complete and the information to complete it (whether in the text book, in a handout, or on the Internet) and it is up to them to find the information and apply it.
Yet to be added
I attended Penn High School in Mishawaka, Indiana from 2005-2009. I then attended Indiana University South Bend from 2009-2013. I am currently working on adding a Gifted and Talented Certification to my license.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart since December of 2014 and we recently welcomed a little girl into our lives in January of 2017. I love the fall, football, and peppermint mochas.
