TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My decade of teaching experience began in 2001 when I graduated from LeMoyne College in Syracuse, New York. I went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Education with a specialization in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from Walden University. I am currently certified to teach prekindergarten through 8th grade in Texas and early childhood through 6th grade in Virginia. My past experience includes 1st grade, 5th grade, and preK through 5th science lab at the elementary level. I have taught 6th grade science at the middle school level, and I am currently a 6th grade language arts teacher. As we all know, the textbooks and other materials we have in our classrooms usually do not quite match the standards we need to teach. This is where my background in curriculum and assessment design comes in. I look at the standards I need to teach and the needs of the students in my classes to come up with an engaging lesson that will help all of my students access the curriculum. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a parent. I understand how frustrating it is to see my children come home complaining about school. While our students need to learn, education must not be all about memorizing facts. My lessons encourage kids to be creative and use their knowledge in different ways.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students learn best when they are actively engaged in their lesson. We do a lot of activities, foldables, and cooperative learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My motivation comes from the students themselves. Recently our school guidance counselor told me a student told him that he likes my class because he finally understands writing the way I explain it. The counselor didn't even tell me the student's name, but it made my whole week to hear it.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master of Science in Education with a specialization in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from Walden University, Minneapolis, Minnesota Bachelor of Arts in Biology (minor in Education) from LeMoyne College, Syracuse, New York

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have four wonderful, and very different, children. My oldest, Michael, has Asperger’s Disorder and is dyslexic. I am always trying new ways to help him enjoy learning despite his struggles with it. Sarah, my second oldest, is in the gifted program. Keeping her challenged is a challenge for everyone around her. Our third child, Heather, is an “average” student. She does well enough in school, but she is often ambivalent about it. Timothy is not old enough to be in school yet. All four of my children benefit from their Mama’s love of learning. We tour the United States every summer on our annual road trips, always on the lookout for something else to experience.
