Frederick Douglass taught that literacy is the path from slavery to freedom. There are many kinds of slavery and many kinds of freedom, but reading is still the path. -Carl Sagan

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

7th year high school English teacher at a highly competitive urban school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

It depends on the day. I believe in student accountability and teacher accountability. If I expect students to perform at a high level and do complicated things, I need to perform at a high level and give support. I like to set frameworks and give students relative freedom to explore. I like to manufacture experiences on top of skills; if I can't relate my content to the real world, I am doing something wrong. _____ I have a special rule for students to check my teaching; in my syllabus it reads: If students ever ask, “Why are we doing this?”, “What is the point of this?”, or “Why is this important?” and I do not have a good answer, then the students will not do that activity. I value student time and will not waste it. Since I hold my students to high standards, I also hold myself to high standards.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Unfortunately, my school/district doesn't really do things like this.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. in Literature K-12 English certification Underwent standard student teaching experience.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My Abridged Educational Philosophy _____ The real duty of any teacher and the great privilege of being a teacher, above content or subject, is to have the potential to make positive impacts in the lives of young people. Sometimes that means being real with them, sometimes that means validating them, sometimes that means treating them like real people, sometimes that means telling them what they do not want to hear, sometimes that means simply listening and understanding, sometimes that means giving them a new perspective or skill, sometimes that means holding them responsible, and sometimes that means inspiring them. To teach students to look inside themselves and discover that they are important and have important things to say and contribute, to show them that they matter, is the real joy of my job. Once students can intrinsically be shown their own self-worth, then the roads to student learning and growth can be opened. I strive to have and hone the abilities and the knowledge to make profound differences in the lives of young people, to not just teach them about Literature or Language, but to help them advance to be more capable and whole individuals. _____ All of my teaching philosophies also exist under my belief that a main goal of education is to challenge students with both skills and ideas; it should not be the lazy river where students just show up, exist, float around for a bit, and then leave. Student success does not mean pass or graduate to me; success means my students have acquired skills and knowledge to be fuller, more well-rounded humans – to be the best versions of themselves. I can't force my students to succeed or achieve; I can only give them the skills, support, infrastructure, resources, and guidance to succeed. In the end, success and achievement are up to them.
