TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my eight year teacher. I first taught at a classical school in the suburbs of Chicago. My philosophy of education was first conceived under the teachings of Charlotte Mason through the instructional coaches that guided me. I now teach in the public school system in the south side of Chicago. My thoughts about teaching and my practice continue to change as I reflect on the quality of my instruction and the needs of my students. One practice has remained constant since my first year of teaching: my goal is to teach and inspire every student in every class I teach. As educators, it is easy to let some students "fall through the cracks." My goal is to reach every child, everyday.

MY TEACHING STYLE

While being a student and a teacher, I discovered the need for getting to "the nutshell" of everything. Out of all the things that can be learned about a topic, what should be committed to memory? My goal is to create "in a nutshell" pages of the topics that are covered in the fourth grade curriculum. That way, teachers and students can have the tools that they need to learn a topic and move on. In addition to that, I will upload proven activities that engage students as they work towards reaching learning targets.
