TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught in a variety of educational settings ranging from kindergarten to higher education. I earned my doctorate in curriculum and instruction from the University of Virginia and am currently teaching preservice and inservice teachers as an online course instructor at UVA. I am passionate about social studies at all grade levels, especially when it comes to geography and history. Oh and I also love the Olympics! I am continuously working to expand the products offered in my store, so check back for updates and follow me by clicking the green star above! I am very interested in providing K-12 teachers with materials they need, so please feel free to contact me if you have an idea for a project or lesson that you would like me to create. katie.loftin@gmail.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to develop high-interest, interactive lessons that my students will enjoy while being tricked into gaining a deeper understanding of whatever topics are being addressed.
