This is my sixth year teaching, and I work in a suburban Phoenix high school. I have spent my career in the Phoenix metro area in both low-income, struggling schools and more affluent schools. I have also worked in both one-to-one technology classrooms / schools, and others that barely had a copying machine.
I am a model for my students. That is to say I show my students how to complete a learning task, the I put the responsibility of learning on the students and urge them to take a positive risk to increase their own learning. I remediate often. Remediation comes by way of simple formative assessments, but also as hard-hitting one-on-one work with students who struggle with particular concepts. I have designed a remediation system based on mastery that I use in my classrooms and place on Google docs. Students go to the Remediation Documents if they score less than 70% on certain assessments.

My favourite part of teaching Spanish is planning, designing lessons, projects, and presentations. I also love phonetics, and I teach my students to read and pronounce phonetics as part of my classes. Lastly, I enjoy traveling around the world.
