TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently in my 7th year teaching in NYC. I started my career as a NYC Teaching Fellow working at a middle school in the South Bronx. After my first year teaching, the school was phased out and I moved to a high school in the Bronx. Over the 5 years I taught at the high school, I spent 3 years teaching solely 10th grade English in both general education and ICT classes preparing students for the English Regents. I also taught a small literacy support class for students who were severely below grade level in reading and writing. In my last two years at the school I created an honors class for students preparing for or not yet eligible for AP English and an elective class for 11th and 12th graders who had passed their state tests but were not on an honors track. I currently teach 9th grade English at a high school in Queens and an additional English class for juniors and seniors who are behind in credits.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I design my lessons with a strong focus on critical thinking skills. I believe that students achieve the best thought when they can work collaboratively and build off of one another's ideas in discussion. I often tell students that pretty much anything they say about a text is acceptable, and that I don't care about what they say so much as how they explain themselves or support their argument. Overall, I want my students to be able to express complex, original thought in discussion and writing.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In addition to my responsibilities as a teacher, I have also served as head of an English department for four years, mentored first and second year teachers in all subjects, and served as a liaison during the transition to the Common Core Learning Standards.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor of English Literature degree from the University of Colorado and a Master of Education degree from Hunter College.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In addition to Professional Development opportunities at my school, I have participated in many NYC Writing Project programs including Teacher-to-Teacher, Bridging the Space, and Youth Voices.
