TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had the opportunity to teach English and Language Arts for the past eleven years. In addition, I was the English Department Lead at my school for eight years, completed the National Writing Project Cohort in 2010, and was the first of four teachers to collaborate on the Assessment Alignment Project in my District (back when Common Core was just a thought.) I work at a school that uses the teaming approach, so I work closely with other core subjects on interdisciplinary units. Despite all of this, my greatest experience is working in the classroom everyday changing the lives of young people.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that students learn best when put into interactive situations that include clear goals and differentiated instruction. Most of my resources and my teaching style reflects hands on learning where students are the doing the work and I am the facilitator. Most importantly, LEARNING SHOULD BE FUN!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

National Board's Certification: 2017 Certification in AYA English; Bachelor's Degree: English Literature with an emphasis in non-fiction writing; Master's Degree: Secondary Education (I have have 3/4 of the credits for a Master's in Sociolinguistics also)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a 6 year old little boy that inspires me to continue learning daily. I love watching the wonder in his eyes as he discovers new things, and hope to instill that excitement in my students eyes. I always try to remember the all of my students (even the challenging ones) are someone's little boy or girl.
