TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching in kindergarten for my first year and then taught a year of 4th grade. Since my third year of teaching, I have been a 6th grade teacher. 2013-2014 will be my 13th year of teaching. My experience covers a wide variety of demographics because I have taught at five different schools in my city ranging from the lowest income school in the area, mostly having migrant families, to the highest income school, with active/vocal parents.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach to the standards rather than to curriculum. I have a hard time teaching anything that I am unable to prove to students is important/relevant to life; I love relating learning to real life. Music is integrated throughout the various subjects I teach. I believe group work is highly effective when organized appropriately. It is important to have a balance between direct instruction and discovery/problem solving as students learn by listening to others and self-reflecting with the use of structured tools. Look for the good in everything and everyone. Teaching the value of every human life is paramount in my classroom. I bring original songs about life into the classroom in order to to my demonstrate various techniques in language arts and in order to and teach ideas. All of my students learn chants in math and language arts every year in order to cement concepts, and every year I have students return from junior high to tell me that the chants have helped them remember techniques.
