TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I guess we should start at the beginning... I completed my student teaching in a very urban area of Indiana; I had 4 sections of grade 9 English in 70 minute blocks. After graduation, I became employed at a Catholic high school in another urban area of Indiana; I was there for five years. I've taught many different courses through the changing and developing years of our English department. These courses include English 9 honors, 10/10 honors, 11 honors, 12/12 honors, (then came electives for upperclassmen) World Literature, American Literature/Am. Lit. honors, and AP Literature and Composition. There was a brief Geography stint. Currently, I am about to be a townie teacher and teach English back at my old high school in Wisconsin. I am very excited about this.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is geared more towards student-lead learning. I like to take the first 5 minutes of class to explain, but then it's off to the races. I think that a classroom doesn't have to be quiet to be the most productive; I like collaborative learning. Over the course of my time in the classroom, I've grown to love so much that I try to find a happy balance. I do some paper-based, some technology-based; some classic lit, some modern lit; some fiction, some non-fiction; some long term writing, some short bits of writing. Depending on the kids in the room, I change and differentiate my lessons.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I got a piece of gum in a handmade Teacher Appreciation card; that was pretty special.. don't worry, the gum was still in its wrapper.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Grade school: St. Anastasia School in Waukegan, Illinois. Graduated and knew how to spell the school's name! High school: St. Joseph High School (now St. Joseph Catholic Academy) in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Graduated with high honors and got only one detention! College: Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana. Notre Dame is actually its own town. No one believes me. Back to the facts: Graduated Cum Laude (or Magna? Definitely not Summa.. But no one can be sure once it's over. I don't remember the last time anyone asked me about it). Once a Belle, always a Belle.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

At the high school in Indiana, I was the sophomore sponsor for 4 years, facilitating sophomore involvement and participation in school government and activities. In addition, I did the book/score keeping for the boys' basketball team; it was 4 years, two state runs, one state title, and too much time with the little (read: actually taller than me) rascals outside of the classroom. But, I did love the basketball family and miss them very much.
