TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My first formal teaching experience was back in late middle school. I worked at the Frontier Culture Museum as a member of the John Lewis Society. My responsibilities included interpreting the German farm house, cooking, gardening, and tending to the animals. Once in High school I worked as a Sunday School teacher with children ages six years old to fifth grade (one room school house style) giving lessons from the Bible including but not limited to the armor of God, how to pray, the lineage, birth, miracles, death, and resurrection of Christ. I also became involved in a local preschool where I taught and cared for infants through age five children. At school, I was a teacher’s assistant at the Shenandoah Valley Governor's School and taught mini lessons during junior orientation while assisting teachers with their presentations. During the summer I am a member on the planning committee for Cave Hill Day Camp where I prepared materials, lessons, schedules and games for the week long camp. In the past two years I have become increasingly involved by becoming a camp counselor responsible for teaching skills to units of 20 girls, and overseeing counselors in training as well as counselor program assistants. For the past year I have worked through Longwood University tutoring students in Spanish 105 and volunteered through a local church to tutor children at risk for dropping out of school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

When I teach whether it be math, science, history, or the Bible, I like to have hands-on interactive activities for the students to engage in. These hands-on activities often incorporate interdisciplinary elements which lend themselves well to the elementary school setting where students are often taught multiple subjects by a single teacher. Even though many of my lessons are project based I make sure to incorporate explicit teaching as well to ensure that no student or assistant is confused. I am also a proponent of asking thought provoking questions to end my lessons in order to keep the students thinking about what they have learned even after leaving the classroom.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

At the moment, I am still very much a student. Although I often take on the role of teaching and guiding others to new levels of understanding I am a college student for the majority of my day. I am currently a Sophomore at Longwood University working to earn my degree in Special Education and an additional endorsement in Spanish Education. However, this does not mean that I do not carry a certain amount of expertise in certain areas. I am extremely well versed in mathematics and have a fairly general understanding of the sciences. This understanding comes from my time at the Shenandoah Valley Governor's School where I completed advanced classes in the STEM field. After my time at the Frontier Culture Museum, I have gained an intricate understanding of colonial Virginia and specifically the German influences present most prominently in the Shenandoah Valley. As most people do, I have a hobbies in which I have amassed substantial information. The most notable of which would be woodworking. It is no doubt my favorite pastime and has allowed me a more in-depth understanding of technical design, fabrication and application.
