TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Annette Whitehead and I have been teaching for over 29 years. I graduated from the University of Iowa with a BS in teaching as well as a Reading Specialty. In 1993 I earned my masters degree in curriculum and instruction with Chapman University. When I first began teaching in 1987 I taught fourth grade. Since then I have taught fifth, first, kindergarten and am now teaching second grade. Computers and technology have been a big part of my career. Over the years I have helped to start up and maintain many labs as well as conduct many professional development classes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Demonstrator or Personal Model Teachers who have a demonstrator or personal model teaching style tend to run teacher-centered classes with an emphasis on demonstration and modeling. This type of teacher acts as a role model by demonstrating skills and processes and then as a coach/guide in helping students develop and apply these skills and knowledge. A teacher with this type of teaching style might comment: "I show my students how to properly do a task or work through a problem and then I'll help them master the task or problem solution. It's important that my students can independently solve similar problems by using and adapting demonstrated methods." Instructors with this teaching style are interested in encouraging student participation and adapting their presentation to include various learning styles. Students are expected to take some responsibility for learning what they need to know and for asking for help when they don't understand something. Above information from Colorado State University

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA from the University of Iowa Master's of ED-Curriculum and Instruction from Chapman University

When I'm not at school you can find me spending time with my husband and two boys. Both of my boys are currently attending ASU and pursuing duel degrees. If I am not with my family then I will have my nose in a book; I am passionate about reading and writing! As a family we love to travel and see and learn about new places and things.
