TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've spent a total of 9 years in education and 7.5 years teaching full time. I've substituted all grade levels and provided homebound instruction for students who were unable to attend school due to illness or other reasons. I've used my experiences as a well-traveled Marine Corps Intelligence Analyst and brought that into the classroom. I believe in today's culture of high-stakes testing that teachers need a balance between work and personal life. I've helped new and experienced teachers in finding ways through the use of instructional technology to reduce their work hours beyond the school day. Before TpT I had provided (more like given) everything to new and struggling teachers since I had 100% pass rate in Civics (7) and 95% pass rate in US History (6) in my first full year teaching. Moreover, I've managed to keep pass rates relatively high by focusing on individual student needs, remediation, and differentiation. What has worked for me and my students is to constantly changed things up and not solely relying on one or two strategies. Students get bored and I definitely get bored. I hope you find my products helpful.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Interactive lectures and discussions with PowerPoint and primary sources, instructional technology, cooperative learning, small groups, and research projects.
