TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a middle school teacher for the past 13 years. My first five years in education, I taught 8th grade general education humanities (LA and SS), which explored American History. The last eight years, I have been teaching 6th Grade Advanced LA and SS; which focuses on ancient history. Along with teaching during the school year, I have also worked at the Summer Institute for the Gifted as a headmaster, Instructor and academic dean, teaching a class entitled, "Writing Matters." Additionally, I was a presenter at the 2014 National Association of Gifted Children Convention in Baltimore, MD; and have been a regular presenter in my district regarding professional development for teachers of the gifted and talented.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a highly creative person, and I like to provide opportunities for invention, creativity and innovation. It's exciting to merge rigor and creativity, and many of my lessons and activities attempt to push students to think deeply and apply their learning to authentic experiences and/or projects. In the past, my students have danced timelines, created websites, and debated intriguing topics.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was recently nominated for the 2015 Washington State Teacher of the Year award.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received an BA in Elementary Education, and an emphasis in history, from Pacific Lutheran University in 2004. In 2010, I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a MA in Literacy and a Reading Endorsement. Most recently, in 2013, I received a specialty endorsement in Gifted and Talented Education from Whitworth University.
