TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have experience teaching NZ Year 7 and Year 8 (American Grade 6 and Grade 7). Within my teaching experience I have taught students who are well below, have learning difficulties, behavioural difficulties, are Gifted and/or Talented, autistic students and students with ADHD and anxiety. I teach all core subjects (reading, writing, maths, inquiry, drama and a little bit of science). I am also a Team Leader.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach using an integrated style - I scaffold my students to enjoy independence and autonomy. They start they week with a checklist of inquiry tasks, and then make decisions during the day as to what they would like to work on. Throughout this, I facilitate group learning and work 1 on 1 with students. I have individualised long term plans so learning is completely catered to the student.
