TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Special Ed Teacher teaching in the City of Rochester for 12 years specializing in meeting students needs within inclusive classrooms. My first 10 years were spent in a 7-12 building but I just recently made the JUMP down to elementary. What a difference! I now teach in an Integrated 5th grade classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I fimly believe in learning by doing and providing my students with meaningful learning experiences. There is no greater joy than running into a student from years past who can still remember a lesson from my class. These friendly faces from the past, without fail, all refer back to a learning experience they had in class with a reflection of what it meant to them. So far no one has ever sought me out in the grocery store to let me know how much they loved my worksheets! I rule my classroom with rapport- my students know that I care about them, inside and outside of the classroom, and that I'm dedicated to their success. When push comes to shove (sometimes quite literally) rapport and respect equate to a child feeling safe in my classroom; students who feel safe in my room are the ones who are willing to take chances and try new things.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

High School Undergrad- B.A. Psych w/ Edu cert. N-6 Gen Ed and K-12 Special Ed (luckily I was grandfathered in prior to certification areas becoming much more narrow) Masters Elem Ed.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In the past 4 years I have bought a home, gotten married, changed jobs twice, and had 2 sons (17 months apart)- all while teaching full-time plus summers!!! I add this only because I wonder if my unexpected realization is a common one amongst other educators. Prior to becoming a Mom, I assumed that once that kid was born I would answer the question, "Who are you, what do you do?" without a moment's hesitation, "I'm a Mom!" But being a teacher is still a major part of my identity. This daily juggling act must be felt by other parents/teachers as well.
