TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 15 years at three main levels: 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.(Also as a long-term substitute in 1st grade) I have taught all subjects and been in four schools. My experience has been focused in a city school in Upstate/Central New York State. I have worked with all different types of children, but have spent most of my time teaching students from a lower socio-economic status. I have worked on: social studies, math, science, and ELA curriculum teams, school improvement teams, been the organizer of science/learning fairs, created a reading initiative between grade levels and collaborated with first and second grades, organized dozens of local and state-wide field trips relevant to curriculum, headed up science clubs, sent on assignment to the New York City Historical Society and Philadelphia, PA for a national teacher training initiative, and developed hundreds of lessons, activities, and strategies across many genres of the elementary grades.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style of teaching is built upon this philosophy: "I desire to uncover ideas, not simply to cover curriculum." My goal each day is to inspire students to see something or realize something new. I want to replace any negative ideas or experiences they have had and help them to see that learning is an adventure. I structure my classroom in a way that is less restrictive but still organized and productive. Some of the core beliefs that influence my style are: 1. A teacher should above all be caring, competent, full of character. 2. A classroom should be a place of acceptance, engagement, connection, and relevance. 3. I also believe the way I treat a student will last longer than what I have taught them. 4. My goal is get my students to the place where they don't depend on me to teach them everything; they become independent and self-motivated learners.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Published in the Spring 2002 NY State Literacy Journal- "The Language and Literacy Spectrum" for my article on the motivation of reading. Honored by a former student at his National Honor Society induction (who graduated in 2012), as a teacher who changed his life in a positive way.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's in Literacy. I also have 60 credit hours above my Master's Degree in a variety of educational topics, along with countless professional development trainings and experiences.
