I have been teaching for four years at a school in Charleston, SC. I started my career teaching 7th and 8th grade math, and was then transferred to 6th grade math and science. I enjoy teaching both subjects during the day and correlating standards across the curriculum in all subjects.
Problem based learning is very exciting for middle school students! It gives them ownership and purpose in their learning. Differentiation is something that all teachers strive for as well as rigor. I am focusing on making improvements in these areas every year.
I was teacher of the month for October 2014 and September 2015. I have been nominated for teacher of the year from 2013-2015. I have been in the local newspaper and on news broadcasts for a problem based project that I assigned my students. I have also received countless forms of recognition from my students, peers, and administrators throughout the years, which, in my opinion, is the highest honor of all.
Bachelors degree of Science in Middle level Education with a minor in math and science from the College of Charleston.
