TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my TeachersPayTeachers Store! I am excited and happy to share the things that I have used in my own classroom with each and every one of you. Just some information about me: My name is Stephanie (Houlihan) Quarato. I started teaching 6th - 8th grade Math at a Catholic School in Illinois. I moved on to teaching in a Public school in Illinois for a year, until I moved to the East Coast where I am now in my eighth year at a Public School. During my first year, I was nominated as Teacher of the Year for my creative teaching style. I have taught Reading, Language Arts, and Math; but my expertise content area is Mathematics. My students evaluate me every year and one of the questions on the survey is why they think I make a good math teacher. Many answers have always been the same -- because I know how to break the problem down and explain it very well. Many of the items that I will share do just that, they break problems down into steps. However, I first provide my students with a way to try and "figure it out" by themselves first. I am all about teaching students to understand rather than memorize. I have also been a part of many Common Core State Workshops, and so my activities and lessons are aligned with the Common Core Curriculum. I do the best that I can to challenge my students! I have been implementing a flipped classroom for the past few years, and I am loving this experience! Not only are students given the chance to review a lesson at their own pace, but students are also able to have more time in the classroom to collaborate with peers or work one-on-one with me. This new interest has also led me to become a Google educator, and I will also be working my way towards becoming certified in flipped teaching!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a very hands-on approach to teach math in my classroom. Very rarely do I open a book. Most of my lessons and assignments have been personalized to meet the goals of every student in my classroom. I create PowerPoint presentations that are color coded and broken down for the students, and also provide notes that go along with those presentations. In addition, I provide students with a chance to discover new learning, as well as challenge them with different tasks that help them deepen their understanding. I aim for understanding rather than memorization!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nominated for Teacher of the Year in my first and third year of teaching. Nominated for the John McCormack Teaching Excellence Award.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from DePaul University in 2009 with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and minor in Mathematics. I also completed my masters degree in Educational Leadership in 2015 at Central Connecticut State University, as well as my sixth year degree and administrative certification from Sacred Heart University in 2016.
