TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a Masters degree in Teaching English and taught at a community college as an adjunct professor. Recently, I moved from the college classroom to the high school classroom and am now a teacher of American English. My current students are generally between 10th and 11th grade, but my overall teaching experience ranges from 6th grade up to a 55 year man in college.

MY TEACHING STYLE

A lot of my lessons have a strong cultural or Anthropological background. I have a tendency to pull history and English together with a specific emphasis on the "regular people" of the past (rather than the famous people that history often follows). My mission? Create: Inclusive, interactive, collaborative, student-led, technology-filled and cultural aware classrooms that incorporate critical thinking all while aligning with Common Core Standards.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Professional development: I have presented educational research at various conferences across the county

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. in English, Anthropology and a minor in Spanish M.A. in Teaching English *Recently trained as a SIOP educator (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am originally from Western Pennsylvania where snow abounds and where a Sheetz is on almost every street corner. Now, I live in North Carolina where there is neither snow nor Sheetz. I love to travel and experience new places and people. So far, I have been fortunate to have traveled to 11 countries and 43 states. I also studied abroad in Central Mexico as an undergraduate student which has become extremely handy as I now have many Hispanic students and know when they are trying to sneak in inappropriate words in class.
