TEACHING EXPERIENCE

What I have taught: 10th Grade World History 11th Grade US History ELL History

MY TEACHING STYLE

I design lessons and activities that I am excited to teach and the students are excited to be a part of. I teach through lots of visuals, primary source analysis, and student engagement. My lessons are heavily influenced by SIOP strategies since I do teach a class of all English Learners. My classes are 2 hour block periods. I work extra hard to make sure my lesson can keep my students attention from "Bell to Bell".
