TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! My name is Jennifer Gonzalez. I taught middle school language arts to mostly at-risk populations for 7.5 years. For 4 additional years, I worked at the university level, teaching pre-service teachers everything from basic philosophy to writing lesson plans to implementing research-based teaching strategies. Currently, I am the editor of Cult of Pedagogy, a website for teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that knowing your students is the first step toward quality instruction, easier classroom management, and a joyful teaching experience. Now, as I work to help teachers to their jobs better, I strive to make the complex simple, to turn big ideas into bite-sized chunks, and to look and look for solutions until I find them.
