TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Stephanie Kirk, graduate of Maryville College and WGU, has been teaching for 14 years. She started in Charlotte, NC, and moved to Austin East Magnet High School in Knoxville, TN, before settling at Heritage High School in Maryville, TN. Her educational philosophy and teaching style can be attributed to her time learning and growing through TAP, NIET’s System for Teacher and Student Advancement. Stephanie believes all students can learn, and she lives by the idea that the role of a teacher is to meet students where they are and provide the support that gets them where they want to be.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is varied between direct instruction and cooperative learning based on the needs of the skill at hand. I find students learn best when presented information and allowed time for processing and practicing information. I lean toward concept attainment and hold students to a high academic standard.
