TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades for 17 years in Muskegon, Michigan. I've also taught at the higher education level, as an adjunct professor of Psychology, Human Relations, and Educational Practices and Techniques.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Artsy-Fartsy, eclectic & extremely humorous

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've presented at the National Council for History Education Conference this past March, in Kansas City, Missouri. I developed a unit about the Harlem Renaissance for Lower Elementary to Middle School age students. I've presented on the topic of Urban Education at the SDE National Conference for Differentiated Teaching Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. I also created a unit on Lyrical Rhyme for the Library of Congress; it appears on their website for public use.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA Psychology & Special Education MA Educational Leadership Certified Elementary Teacher (K-8 Self-Contained) Certified School Administrator Endorsements in Elementary Principalship, Cognitive Impairments, Behavioral\Emotional Impairments

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a 10-year-old Autistic Son, Garyn, with Aspergers Syndrome. He is the absolute joy of my life and brings me laughter nonstop! Other than my Son and teaching, my other passion is art and drawing. I really like to create realistic portraits of people, using only a mechanical pencil! If you'd ever like to have anything custom drawn or created for you, please email me and I'd love to make you happy and have fun at the same time! caraelizabethtaylor@gmail.com
