I have been in the education field for thirteen years. I have been a credentialed teacher for the last four years. I have taught every grade level except 2nd and 8th grade.
If I have done my job as an educator, my students walk away with more than just a learned curriculum. I love to get my students to break the box altogether, not just think outside of it. So many times, students are too literal and black and white; this does not help them with metacognition (thinking about their thinking). Not only this, but my student learn to take pride and ownership of everything they do (not just the good either). I am growing human beings, not statistics.

Hey There! My name is Cory Whitson, I live in Northern California. I have a hodge-podge of experience: medical billing, running an ITV Department (Interactive TV - Professor at one location and students at another - still works like a real classroom), Adobe, Corel, Google, Coding, and so much more! My true love and passion is teaching; I love to see the “light-bulb” moment on student’s faces when it all comes together.
