TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm currently in my 12th year of teaching, with all of my experience in upper elementary, with 9 years in fifth grade. I'm a military wife so I've had the pleasure of teaching in Massachusetts, Washington, Virginia, and now California. I've taught third, fourth, and fifth, but my true love is definitely with my fifth graders!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a good mix of demonstrator and facilitator, and I think that my style is constantly changing as I adapt to the students in front of me year after year. It is most important to me that I create a safe and positive learning environment where conversations about learning can take place and all moments can be learning moments. I use a great deal of the Responsive Classroom approach, especially when it comes to the first six weeks, modeling (and more modeling and MORE modeling) and academic choice. If I learned anything from college, it's that lectures are BORING so I make sure my students are a part of every learning experience with lots of opportunities for discussion and movement.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

A.A.S. in Criminal Justice A.A.S. in Paralegal Studies B.A. in Political Science M.Ed. in Educational Studies They say that experience is your best teacher, and my two years of service with AmeriCorps gave me an incredible experience in the classroom that secured a move from the legal field to that of teaching.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love to travel! I think our best education comes from our personal experiences and so I try to get out and see new places in our world whenever I can so I can bring those experiences to the classroom. I'm obsessed with Broadway musicals, a dedicated wife, a mom of two fur babies, a book lover, willing to test cupcakes at any moment, and a devoted Red Sox fan, much to the dismay of my NY roots.
