TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After working in the geology field after undergrad I realized my love (and inherited career love from my mom) of teaching. I received my MAT from NC State University with a focus in high school science. During my time at NC State I had a wonderful student teaching experience at a public high school in Johnston County, NC. Since graduating I have worked in various charter schools in Washington, DC and Durham, NC. I have experience teaching 6th (Earth Science) and 7th grade (biology) science as well as high school Earth Science. I have also been an ESL teacher for students in grades K-5, so my language focus quite often appears in my lessons and materials. I have been a contract curriculum writer for the top-performing charter school in DC and have written NGSS-based curriculum for grades 4-8. I am a very thoughtful planner for both academic instruction as well as social skills.

MY TEACHING STYLE

A positive classroom culture is the foundation for my teaching and my instruction. I incorporate the 5 E learning cycle as well as social skills into my lessons. My curriculum and lessons are aligned to the NGSS performance expectations and include lessons for middle school science (6-8), 4th grade, and 5th grade.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The 8th grade students at my school in DC voted to have me give the commencement address in 2015. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN_BuI2WnSM

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS in Geology from UNC-Wilmington. MA in Teaching from NC State University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

About me: I am currently a K-5 ESL teacher while doing contract curriculum work for grades 4-8 at the top-performing charter school in Washington DC. I love baby animals and all things Harry Potter. Follow me on twitter and instagram! @msmannscience! About my TpT store: As a first-year teacher many, many moons ago, I found it difficult to find usable materials online. I promise to provide just as many free materials as priced items in hopes to help teachers in need of materials. As for my priced items, I am choosing to have faith in my fellow teachers and will keep all of my documents in Microsoft word so that people can edit my materials to make them suit their own needs and the needs of their students. I trust that no one will use my materials to make profit for themselves.
