TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught grades 3, 4, 5 and combination 4/5 classes in Title I schools for 11-1/2 years. I am a certified eMINTS teacher so have had the benefit of teaching in a technology-rich classroom. Simultaneously, I have worked for the district Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment as the math Chairperson for grades 3-5 on the district Curriculum Development Committee and as a trainer. As 3-5 Chairperson I worked with the committee to evaluate and present math curriculum selection to the School Board for approval, research and develop resources for teachers and students, and train both new and veteran teachers in the use of resources. My responsibilities as a trainer further extended to the development of guides and resources to support science curriculum and providing training on the integration of science with reading and writing instruction to district staff.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am passionate about honoring multiple intelligences and learning styles, integrating the arts (for real!), and explicitly teaching students how to apply and generalize metacognitive strategies.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Site lead teacher and member of the SPLS planning team.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am an elementary school teacher with a Bachelor of Arts in Antiquities! "Antiquities" is a broad topic of study: basically it is the study of humankind. My focus was on cultural anthropology, or the study of the development of human societies and culture. Sounds like a perfect fit for an elementary school teacher after all, doesn't it? Our son was born shortly after my graduation and fortunately I was able to stay home with him until he started school. Witnessing his growth and love of learning inspired me to want to provide meaningful opportunities for other kids too and led me to return to school as a post-bacculaureate student. I earned the certification to teach grades 1-6 and completed my MA in Elementary Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I believe we must do more to support the emotional intelligence of our kids: they must to be taught how to think about their thinking in order to realize they can choose how to react to a situation; they must be taught how to monitor self-talk so they do not place false limitations on their abilities; they must be taught empathy and given many explicit opportunities to practice it until it becomes automatic. I also believe health, social studies, and science instruction are critical to raising complete human beings and am overjoyed when I see project-based learning implemented with its inclusion.
