TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Currently teaching English as a Second Language (K - 12) for over 10 years. Worked as an ASL Educational Interpreter (6 -12) for 10 years; Taught Signing Exact English at a local college as an adjunct professor; Taught American Sign Language in adult Education classes for over five years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Responsive: I use a variety of methods, including observation, progress monitoring, and formative assessments to determine my students individual needs and then create and/or adapt materials to meet those needs.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

One of my greatest moments was when I gave an assignment to my 10th grade ELA class that required them to write a review of Poe's short story "The Masque of the Red Death". They could either recommend it as a worthwhile read or warn readers that it didn't live up to the hype, and why. (I had been told by a veteran teacher that the story was a curriculum requirement, but that it "fell flat" every year.) I decided to give the students the opportunity to voice their opinion on the subject. I assigned the rough draft for homework. One student, who was was repeating the course, said, "I actually WANT to do this! I can't believe you made me like doing homework in English class!" That was definitely a satisfying moment for me as a teacher, to see that kind of enthusiasm from a student. (He ended up writing one of the best papers in the class--the first of many shining moments for him that year!)
