TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For the last five years, I have been providing instruction/services to special education charter school students virtually through Blackboard Collaborate. Prior to this, I have worked as a middle school and SDC teacher in the brick and mortar environment for five years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Every child has the potential to learn and grow. It is up to the teachers and parents to motivate them and teach them using the strategies by which they learn best. I find that teaching to a range of modalities is best practice in the classroom. Some children learn visually, some auditorially, and some kinesthetically. Including all the modalities ensures that you touch upon each individual child's learning strengths while reinforcing concepts through other senses.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching virtually has allowed me to fully embrace the EdTech movement and many of the Web 2.0 tools available to enhance instruction. I have also learned of many free tools available to students to assist with compensatory strategies, such as free speech-to-text programs, free audiobook sources, and more. I enjoy creating lessons for online instruction and figuring out how to "flatten" curriculum, while continuing to make sure my students are engaged in learning and using multiple modalities. Virtual manipulatives are a wonderful tool for this. Please join me in my adventure of creating wonderful resources for other virtual (and brick and mortar) teachers to use. I hope to create at least one new resource per week. I would love it if you followed me and welcome your feedback on resources that are being provided or that you would like to see provided, especially .wbd files.
