TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Created For Learning contains resources created by a married couple that are both teachers. We believe we are all #CreatedForLearning, and we love exploring what that looks like throughout our lives. Our teaching experiences span a wide range of grade levels.

profilejonathan-s.jpgJONATHAN: My 1st day of teaching was September 10, 2001. Talk about a crazy 2nd day! These past years of teaching have been such a blessing.

I have had the privilege of teaching 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th English, Middle School Creative Writing, and Freshman Composition, Creative Writing, and Literacy at the college level.

In my free time, I write novels for young adults. I'm fairly certain I'm the only young adult author whose birth country no longer exists, but I hope someone will prove me otherwise! I was the head editor of the RipRap Literary Journal and have written book reviews for www.TeenReads.com.

profilelisa-s.jpgLISA: The bulk of my 6 years of teaching experience was in first and second grade. Two of those years were first/second grade combo classes.

Currently, my main job is staying home with our preschool and elementary-age girls. It's been really insightful and humbling to experience the public school experience from a parent point of view.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We like helping students think. We're not so much interested in teaching them WHAT to think, but more importantly HOW to think. And even more...that they SHOULD think. We try to create a classroom environment that allows students the space to think, encourages open discussion, and hopefully lights a passion for learning.
