I have had an interesting teaching career. I began teaching at a residential treatment center where I worked with students with social and learning disorders. I had to really work to find lessons that would work for students on all levels. I taught grades 8-12 and many times students from different grades would be in the same class because they were working on credit recovery. I recently began working at a new charter school. I teach 7th and 8th grade in the same classroom. I also teach the same students all day, so I teach all subjects. This was a big change for me but I have really enjoyed the challenge.
I like to use Power Points to help students follow along with the lecture, I try to incorporate fun activities and discussions whenever I can. I also try to bring in videos when they are applicable, I think they help the students relate to the material.
I received the most relate-able teacher award in 2014
Bachelor of Science in Social Studies at Utah State University
I am pretty new to the teaching profession and I have loved every minute of it. Having to teach 4 different subject can be challenging at times, but resources like TPT have been lifesavers for me. I decided I should give back and help out by putting my lessons on here for new teachers like me. I hope my material can be helpful!
