TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love to teach! I have taught 9th, 11th, and 12th grade English. Now, I run my own preschool and get to be a mom!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am currently teaching preschool. My number one goal for my students right now is to help them have a positive first experience with school. I strive to instill within them a "I can" attitude, as I believe confidence and the willingness to try are the two most key ingredients to success in school. At the same time, I believe that school should be challenging--if it doesn't' stretch you, you can't grow. So I try to inspire my students to dig a little deeper than they have before, while cheering them along the way. One of the best ways to help students learn is to teach them to make connections to the text and to the world around them. I try to incorporate this principle in all of my Teachers Pay Teachers products.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Though I never formally received accolades from the high school at which I taught, my time teaching is rife with examples of my students daring to try new things and reaching new personal heights. I will always remember the day one ninth grade student, who had formally never been in a general English classroom and who had a deep fear of reading aloud, volunteered to read a passage of Shakespeare in front of the class. Perhaps my favorite honor was given to me by my daughter who is three the other day. As I was busily chopping vegetables for our soup, she said, "You are a good mom."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English Education.
