TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a Special Education teacher for nine years in middle and high school. I am currently teaching high school Life Skills, and I love it. The students I've worked with for so long are getting jobs and going to work, which is amazing for me to watch! All my students have a variety of talents and strengths, which means they do best when material is customized to meet their needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a visual learner, and find that many of my students are as well. I try to use concrete examples to explain our abstract world. I am fortunate to be able to use animals in the classroom as both teaching tools, and to assist students with behavior issues to succeed. Many reports have shown the benefits that animals can have when working with children who have experienced trauma or abuse. Our animals have played a key role in helping students find success both academically and emotionally. Through my curriculum, I try to present my students with lessons that are at their level, yet looks like a higher level material. There is nothing worse than giving an 8th grader a passage to read with cute little fuzzy bears on. I believe in protecting the dignity of my students, and that starts with the material I ask them to do.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Shining teaching moment? When a student of mine with an IEP in writing won 3rd place in a local writing contest...that was a good day :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Central Washington University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As well as being a teacher, I am a compulsive creator. I paint, metalsmith, sculpt, etc. Everyone in my family is either an artist or an engineery, so I take a lot of inspiration from them! I love the outdoors, and any type of geology or ornithology. Before becoming a teacher, I traveled to Alaska, worked outdoors for the Forest Service, and owned my own sailboat. I enjoy sharing my own unique perspective with my older students who are about to join the workforce.
