TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 2002, all of it Special Education, with the exception of a few regular division high school level classes thrown in there. I have taught self-contained, resource, alternative placement, reading recovery, and BD/ED. The lowest grade level I have ever taught was 6th grade, but have taught all ability levels as well as all core subjects. I am now primarily teaching Algebra, Geometry and History. I have over 10 years of experience teaching students of diversity in very poor socioeconomic communities and all that comes with that.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is one of ease, flexibility, respect, pacing, and care. Having worked with the style of students that I have, I've learned that relationships come first, education second. If the students don't feel comfortable in their learning environment, safe and secure, they won't trust you to teach them. They won't trust you to know their weaknesses and areas of need. I have to be flexible enough to know that something isn't working, stop immediately and change direction mid-lesson. My pacing of lessons can sometimes be sloth-like. I teach to mastery, so if it takes us four weeks on one concept, it takes us four weeks. I want my kids to see that success. I also hate pencil and paper tests. I give projects, gallery walks, DBQ projects, online activities rather than the standby. Lastly, my room is safe. From bullying, from hunger, from pain, from everything. Kids from all over crash in my room which is great.
