Being a younger generation teacher it is harder to find a job in the teaching industry now, rather than 10 years ago. I am proud to be going into my 6th year at the school that I actually attended.
People perceive me as an unconventional teacher; while teaching science you have to have an open mind and be open to change. Some days we do hands on labs, other days it is a powerpoint and some notes, the kids love an occasional Bill Nye video. Not all children learn the same way; so you have to be open to change and be able to adapt. That's why there is never a concrete plan put into place.
At our school we have an award called Dynamic Duo; I received this award with my colleague because how well we worked together. We would meet every day to plan out our lessons- we made it our point to be on point, this way the students across two seventh grade teams were on the same page.
I am a proud graduate of the Old Bridge Townships Public Schools- after graduating in 2004, I attended Middlesex County College to obtain my Associates as an Education Practitioner. After graduating in 2009, I continued my education at Kean University. In 2012, I received my Bachelors of Arts in Education; I am certified to teach K-5 and 5-8 in Special Education and Earth Science. I hope to further my education (once my daughter is in elementary school) in education or psychology.
