TEACHING EXPERIENCE

8 Years, 2 using CCSS and 6 using TEKS, as both an ELA teacher and Reading Interventionist

MY TEACHING STYLE

Very much student centered/student choice!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Month, September 2017. I have taught PDs on CHAMPs, use of Flocabulary, Classroom management, ESL inclusion, Introduced Sub-Plan B Alternative (for when you do not have enough substitute teacher coverage).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Masters of Arts, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL); BS, Liberal Studies with minors in English and Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My wife, Suzanne, is also in the classroom, originally as a substitute teacher but now as a paraprofessional Math interventionist, and she works with me on our TpT store. Why is this important? Because she sees the products through a different lens, which can be an enormous benefit! While other ELA nerds like myself might get excited about a product for class, she will ask me, "What if someone who isn't a writer is covering your class?" Time to revamp! In addition, she herself has a background (and degree) in animal science, with heavy emphasis on genetics, so when she is ready to dive in, we will probably start selling some science materials!

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
