TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for the past ten years at a Charter school in Florida. I have changed grades several times as needed, and I have a great deal of experience teaching second grade and kindergarten. Although I have been given text books to use (most years), I have been given a good amount of flexibility in how I teach. I am committed to my students' success, and I think that it is important that I continue to grow and learn each year I teach.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think that engagement is the key to learning. I want students to spend as much time on task as possible in the classroom. I hold students accountable for their own learning, and I have them set goals and keep track of their progress. I try to keep my lessons fast paced and engaging, and I use Kagan stuctures as often as possible to keep student engagement high. I like to use learning centers in both reading and math, which I use to practice concepts that we are learning and to review important things that we have learned. It is important to me that students celebrate their personal strengths, as well as their similarities and differences to their classmates. I want students to feel good about their progress and have fun learning!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am honored to be appreciated by my parents and loved by my students. The biggest honor is when a parent tells me their child never liked school or thought they had any potential to learn until they stepped into my classroom, and now they share how much they love learning.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my Bachelors Degree from Saint Leo University, and I would one day like to return to school to receive my Masters in Reading. I try to take at least one Kagan professional development class each year, and I am constantly pursuing new knowledge by reading books and online materials.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a busy mom of a teenager. I am active in Girl Scouts, band boosters, and church. I enjoy reading, gardening, cooking, and napping in my spare time.
