TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in both the private and public domains. Currently I am a teacher within a public school system and have been teaching in the same district for 13 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is one that involves a hands on approach. I make sure that I take part in every activity that I ask my students to take part in. This allows me to understand what they will be going through - the struggles - and to make sure that my lessons provide them with the necessary scaffolding in order to be highly successful.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

This past year my SGP was an 82 for language arts instruction.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education as well as a bachelors degree in psychology.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am constantly reading professional material to make sure that I am providing my students with best practices. I also attend seminars and professional development constantly in order to improve upon my techniques and to build my knowledge base.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
