Do your students effectively work text into their writing? Unless you're teaching an upper level course, the answer is probably, "Not so much." Many times, students resort to quote dropping just for the sake of getting in the "required" number of

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My career started in an inner city Charter school in Kansas City, Missouri, where I taught 6th and 7th grade ELA, with an emphasis on writing, for our teams had separate writing and reading teachers. After receiving my Master's degree in Educational Technology, I left the classroom to a technology position. After only one year as the "tech department" for a small school district, I decided to go back into the classroom, and joined a Freshman Center team, teaching 9th grade English. After two years, the principal decided to implement a writing class, so I began specifically teaching writing, once again. When the Freshman Center was consolidated with the High School, I was moved from Freshmen to Juniors and Seniors, eventually moving back to work with Freshmen. After 15 years in the classroom, I completed my Specialist Degree in Informational Science and Technology, and I was given the opportunity to open a new Library Media Center for the new Middle School in my district, so now I get to help the teachers and the students from a different position.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style always focused on solidifying a safe and comfortable environment for my students, as I worked with a number of difficult students. Once a mutual level of respect was established, and my students understood my expectations, they aimed to reach those goals. I always encouraged them to use the resources they were given to learn from their past mistakes and be successful moving forward, and many of these tools are the basis of what I'm sharing here.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was nominated for teacher of the year twice in my 13 years of teaching with my current district, but the honors that I appreciate most are the numerous invitations to teacher recognition nights for my students. I've also received a number of grants for various technologies and literature, both from the district and outside the district.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I started with receiving my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education - English, from the University of Central Missouri. After teaching for a semester, I continued my education by obtaining my Master's degree in Educational Technology, also from the University of Central Missouri. After teaching a decade, I decided to further my education and I completed my Specialist degree in Informational Science and Technology, from the University of Missouri - Columbia. I do have aspirations to obtain my PhD before I can say I'm really done.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Throughout my 15 years in the classroom, I've been responsible for creating curriculum for a number of courses from Middle School English, to High School Summer School, and Freshman Writing to AP Literature. I've developed a number of resources that I have students coming back from college asking for, so I hope they're of use to you as well!
