TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a Project-Based Learning Coordinator for grades 2-6. I work with students who are on an advanced learning plan as well as kids who have shown the ability to think critically. My lessons for older students prepare them for STEM programs and my younger students get introduced to exciting new technology at a very young age. I was an art teacher before this and I bring the creative arts overlap to every lesson. My first and main goal, as should any PBL teacher have, is for total engagement. Students will readily learn for themselves with my lessons and unit plans.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students become self-directed with proper planning from the teacher and exciting work in front of them. I try to make every lesson one that has a lot of impact and gets kids talking excitedly. My classroom is always buzzing with excitement and kids can not wait to come down again to work with me. I try to share some of my best approaches to teaching in my lessons, but also leave flexibility for classrooms that are learning at different rates.
