TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to jigsaw project research with my high school students, having them teach smaller groups and then sometimes even teach other classes. I believe in giving options for projects, or, at least, flexibility in how it can be completed. I like to do examples when possible, and include those in my resources if I have them. The more students can be out of their desks, acting things out, role playing, debating, walking around the classroom- the better. I think this teaching style requires a lot of buy-in from both students and teacher, but it's worth it!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS in Print Journalism from Cal Poly SLO Teaching Credential, secondary English from UCSB Masters in Education (M.Ed), UCSB

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I believe in projects that are well-defined but allow lots of leeway from students. I think this gives a sense of ownership but also no room for loopholes. I think you will see this teaching style in my products, which I believe have been very effective in teaching secondary humanities courses.
