TEACHING EXPERIENCE

First year taught Math and Science at Wilson Middle School in Pasadena, California. I eventually taught History in the Middle Ages to seventh graders for three years. I also taught Music Appreciation. Wilson is an International Baccalaureate school, privy to many incredible local museums. I left my position in California to relocate to the East Coast. After some long-term substitute teaching in Rhode Island, I obtained a permanent position teaching Ancient History and Language Arts in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Marblehead Charter School is considered an outstanding pioneer charter school, led by student-driven exhibitions as evidence of learning. A family emergency forced another relocation and I moved to Hobe Sound Florida. For the last four years, I have taught World History, U.S. History, and World Geography at Jupiter High School in Jupiter, Florida. Jupiter is a sleepy beach town with a great school community. At Jupiter I teach the regular classes, focusing on integration targeting Common Core curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I integrate a variety of tools for creative portfolio pieces, using Common Core standards as my guides. Lessons are simple and directed towards the regular education student of any age. Various strategies target Social Studies curriculum with Language Arts integration. Power Points and worksheets teach the lesson of History, with practical writing skills.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Began collegiate undergraduate in Amherst, Massachusetts at the University of Massachusetts and eventually was graduated from the University of Florida, in Gainesville, Florida. I majored in Liberal Arts and History and minored in Education. For my teaching credential, I completed the Multiple Subjects requirements, with a Secondary supplement in Social Studies. I am currently working towards my Masters of History, with a concentration in Latin American and Florida History.
