TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught language arts and reading for 8 years to a diverse population of students from 7th - 9th grade including low socioeconomic, ESL, and special education. After teaching, I then became an administrator and have had the opportunity to work in administration at elementary, middle, and high school, along with being an instructional coach. I'm currently a coordinator for professional development at a school district in Arizona.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In teaching I make sure that I always set my students up for success by scaffolding assignments with vocabulary and background. I want students to enjoy themselves, so I always try to keep a sense of humor in any activity we do to keep them engaged. It's also important for my students to always be involved. When preparing lessons and activities, I always think about what students need to know to be involved, what they should be able to do, and how they'll show that to me.
