I have taught students from grades K-8. I have also taught ELLs from grades 6-8 and students with learning differences. Currently, I am pursuing my MAT in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in social studies and language arts. I help middle grades teachers with creating relevant and authentic lesson plans aligned with the Common Core Standards ( e.g., lessons: language arts, journalism, ESL, social studies, visual arts,a nd lessons for students with ADHD, Autism spectrum, and sensory processing disorders).
As a teacher, I embrace diversity and authenticity. I teach with UDL principles in mind. I differentiate instruction and I create my lesson plans, activities, and assessments around the needs and strengths of each one of my students. I align activities and assessments to objectives, essential questions, and Standard(s). I create relevant activities that activate prior knowledge. AND, no matter what content area I teach, I always incorporate reading and writing in my lesson plans.
