TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The two of us at Idea Galaxy have been in education for a combined 23 years. We have taught 6th-7th English Language Arts, 7th-8th Grade Math, and English as a Second Language (ELL) for kindergarten through adult learners. We've also enjoyed many opportunities to provide professional development to fellow educators on a variety of topics.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to experiment with different methods and see what works.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Being able to see those "light bulb" moments with students.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Between the two of us we have three masters degrees and two bachelor degrees. We have a B.A. in Teaching History, a B.A. in Linguistics, minors in English, Physical Education, and Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL). We also each have a M.Ed in Bilingual and Multicultural Education and one M.Ed in Educational Leadership- Principalship.
