TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a veteran.I am enjoying my 32nd year of successful teaching. I began my teaching vocation in a small mission school in rural Kentucky. I taught almost everything in grades 5-8. My students called me "Miss Cathy." From humble beginnings-- no chalkboard, little resources-- but excellent and dedicated mentors, I learned the art of teaching. Some of my students later won full rides to Notre Dame University, Yale, and the University of Kentucky. For the last eleven years, I have taught in a highly-ranked public high school. I am now "Mrs. Jones." I teach Grades 11, 12, and AP English. What has not changed is my love and respect for teaching and its power to change lives-- both my students and mine.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching is an art. Teaching is a vocation. Teaching is a moral obligation to the next generation. Teaching is also hard work; it truly is a calling. I believe the best teachers present information and skills in a way that simplifies the process and creates an opportunity for all students to buy into the belief that they, too, can succeed.I facilitate student success. I create materials and lessons that present information so that students learn. I like to say that I am a teacher and not an assigner. I do not like busy work. I do not buy into any instruction that makes students "walk around the block in order to cross the street." Clear goals+ clear focus+ clear application= a class of successful students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received the Excellence in Teaching Award from Campbellsville University this year. I was recognized as a Walmart Teacher of the Year.I have also received a Diocese of Covington Teacher Recognition scholarship. I have also been recognized by my local school board for achieving excellent results on state assessments. My students have placed # 2 out of 230 high schools in Grade 11 On Demand Writing. My students consistently score in the top percentages of KY high schools in ACT Reading and English. This year (2018) they ranked # 17 out of 160 Kentucky school districts. I have also enjoyed a 95% pass rate for my AP Literature and Composition students.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended schools that stressed the importance of fundamentals and of academic rigor. I attended Notre Dame Academy, an all girls college prep high school in Park Hills, KY. Afterward, I received my B.A. in English and Secondary Education from Northern Kentucky University. I came to Harlan when the Notre Dame sisters needed a teacher. I earned my Master's Degree from Union College. I am certified (and have taught) grades 5-12.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have served as interim principal which only affirmed my love for classroom teaching.
