Sure...I have an MA in English Education, but I'll be candid. I've only been teaching for four years. I know three years is only a twinkle in teacher time, but my time teaching in both college and high school in the last few years has allowed me to cultivate a teaching style that I believe is relevant in the digital and common-core era without sacrificing applicability, originality, individuality, and fun.
My lessons strive to meet students on their level. I enjoy creating unit plans that use formative assessments which enable the teacher to monitor his/her students' progress, yet also prepare students for the summative, culminating assessment at the end of the unit. My lessons and assessments will prepare students for end of the course tests and common-core benchmarks/assessments without making them fall asleep or become mindless drones. My personal teaching style is built on student engagement, and my lesson plans mirror that style. I'm not a worksheet teacher. I'm not a homework assigner. I'm a hands on, intense lover of learning who strives to make the love of learning contagious for all.
