I have been a public school teacher for the past ten years, primarily teaching grades seven and eight. I also serve as the seventh grade level leader for the teachers in my building. During the past ten years I have been afforded many professional development opportunities, mostly through the AFT. I am nationally trained in Differentiated Instruction, Data and Assessment, and Reading Comprehension Instruction. I am also a trained evaluator under the Rhode Island Innovation Consortium's evaluation system. Becoming an evaluator has helped me to become more reflective of my practice. I have also had the opportunity to teach several summer courses and ramp-up classes at the high school level.
What I love my most about my job is that I am able to be creative everyday! Everyday brings with it new challenges, successes, and surprises!
While I have thoroughly enjoyed some of my professional accomplishments mentioned above, what has always been my greatest accomplishment is the impact I am able to have on my students. I recently saw a student who had graduated high school who told me what a difference I made in his life. That is why I go to work everyday.
