What I like about this rubric is that it's simple. My students do a lot of writing and thus I do a lot of grading. There is room off to the side to allow room for comments.

I have 4 reflection and exit tickets that are designed with the idea that students must be in charge of their own learning. I use them to attach to tests after students have had time to reflect on what they did well and what they need to do in order

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a NBCT with a total of nine years teaching. Five of those years I taught successfully in an inner city school with a high poverty rate. I am currently in a public charter school where I am enjoying the trust and autonomy that is granted to me in regard to my teaching.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a firm believer that children excel when they experience a classroom that revolves around learning from their mistakes. In my classroom, students learn that they are in charge of their own learning and through careful reflection of their work, they are able to goal set. Children need to feel confident and safe enough to be risk-takers. They need rigorous lessons in which they are engaged in critical thinking, discourse, problem solving, and the analyzing of text. I believe in empowering students and holding them accountable to be successful.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In 2012, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in Elementary Literacy.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Central Washington University in 2007 with a double major in Early Childhood Education as well as Elementary Education.
