TEACHING EXPERIENCE

With 23 years of experience in education, the vast majority of that teaching 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts and integrating Social Studies and Science as frequently as possible, teaching is my heart!

I am passionate about literacy! I believe that literacy is the foundation of all learning. When students are better readers and writers, their performance in all subjects increases, and they are better able to think and to communicate their thoughts. Literacy is the most significant skill needed to function effectively in school, in the workplace, and in society. It is vital to a successful education, career, and quality of life. Literacy enables students to become active and independent thinkers and lifelong learners, which is empowering and sets students up for success in whatever endeavors they choose to pursue! When people are able to function at high levels of literacy, doors of opportunity are opened for them that would not be available otherwise -- and I want to help open as many doors as possible for my students!

Above all, literacy is FUN! It feels great to finish a good book, to learn something new, or to escape the day-to-day stresses of life by jumping into a great novel!

MY TEACHING STYLE

All learners have different and unique learning styles, so I strive to integrate a variety of teaching styles in my classes and curriculum. I would say I am equal parts tried-and-true-methods and hands-on-learning with generous doses of collaborative projects, critical thinking activities, authentic learning opportunities, frequent dashes from my bag-of-tricks, and liberal pinches of humor!
