I use this twist on a KWL to help my students practice academic vocabulary for our unit study. I list the words they need to know in the first column and have them define what they "think" they mean in the second column. I then have them work with

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught a variety of grades in the elementary and middle school levels, as well as teaching ESOL at the state college level. I am currently enjoying the mighty homeschooling adventure! I use all of my experience and professional development in creating resources that I hope will be useful to my colleagues.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love experiential learning on all levels. If students cannot get their hands on materials, examples and resources, how can they possibly construct knowledge in meaningful ways? You will see this philosophy come through in the materials I produce for use in the classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I feel the greatest honor of being a teacher is that "ah-ha!" moment, and I take great pride in proving student learning and achievement of goals through portfolios, data, and writing-to-learn experiences.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my Bachelors of the Arts in Business, I've completed the majority of my Masters of Education, I've been awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity, and I've also added the ESOL endorsement to my professional teaching certificate.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I once had my mind set on teaching elementary school; I wanted to give young students a solid foundation on which to build the rest of their education. But, as fate would have it, a very wise principal (who happened to have been my own dean in middle school) told me about the need for good teachers in middle school and how this age group needed as much a foundation as the elementary students, if not more so. As we all remember, middle school is a trying time for students on many levels. As I progressed through my studies and became more focused on the need for students to love reading, I realized that the foundation I have been craving to establish needs the most reinforcement in middle school. And thus my journey to become a middle school language arts teacher began! I would not have changed a thing. My love has since expanded to teaching ESL students at the state college level, and am now teaching multiple grades simultaneously through homeschooling. It is a wonderful life indeed!
