TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Fifteen years' teaching experience in middle and high school. Instructed Advanced Placement (AP) world history, international relations, psychology, sociology students and middle school ELA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

While in college, I was assigned a paper to analyze Homer’s "The Iliad and The Odyssey". The idea seemed daunting and oozed agony to me. My dread led me to the library to discover that George Lucas based Star Wars on Joseph Campbell’s writing. Campbell believed that all myths follow a pattern that reveals the hero’s journey. My paper was written in record time by showing the similarities in the adventures taken by Luke Skywalker and Odysseus. Further explaining how we were all on a hero’s journey in life, we use myths to help us navigate and move into different stages in our lives. When I received the paper back it read A- with the comment, “Strange but Creative.” The message was clear; diverging from the status quo is “strange.” Shame made me shove the paper quickly into my backpack so nobody would see the professor’s comment. This experience shaped who I became as a teacher. It is important for me to bring creativity into my teaching. My lesson plans will bring excitement and magic into any classroom.
