TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 4th emerging readers using the Read180 Scholastic intervention program. I have also had the pleasure of teaching 4th grade single-gender English and Language Arts classes, as well as 4th and 5th grade Gifted and Talented ELA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

It is my belief that an outstanding teacher creates a positive and safe environment where students feel excited to learn. It is my philosophy that when a child knows he/she is valued, it is evident in his/her motivation to succeed. My overarching goal is to lift students up as I challenge them, so they become self-motivated thinkers who work towards success in literacy and life. I know that in order for students to be life-long learners, a seed of curiosity paired with the determination to discover their own answers, must be planted. I am certain that the strongest bridge between prior knowledge and new understanding is a student’s ability to question. A child who feels secure in his/her environment is more willing to take risks. Asking questions is a risk, but it is also a strong method which bridges prior knowledge to new and greater understanding for now and in the future. My students often make inquiries based on their desire to further understand a skill or concept. As their classroom teacher, I model for my students what it looks like and sounds like to be a critical thinker. I model strong meta-cognitive skills, how to synthesize information, and ask questions because of my own excitement to learn.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been a teacher for seven years and have enjoyed playing an active role in encouraging students to have fun as they learn! Some of the greatest moments in my career have been those twinkly-eyed, bright-light-bulb epiphanies where the student has finally gained understanding of a concept or mastered a skill! I am currently navigating a new teaching position: I am a mother to our first baby girl, Sophie!
