MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that effective teaching at any level requires differentiated instruction, authentic assessment, modeling, feedback, clear objectives, real-world application, knowledge and excitement about the subject, and engaging activities that promote critical thinking. Therefore, my teaching philosophy is a student-centered, constructivist approach rooted in authentic assessment that allows students to experience learning first-hard and demonstrate deep understanding. I believe that students learn best when they are challenged to think deeply and apply their skills to new and relevant situations, in a hands-on environment. I strive to create a classroom community that teaches students to think critically and independently, to apply their skills in producing high-quality work, to take initiative, and to work collaboratively with one another. Therefore, regardless of content, I believe in using pedagogy that challenges students to create, engage, and understand academic subjects through research, writing, inquiry and technology. Each of these components allow me to design and implement lessons, through the use of backward design, that will teach for true understanding.
