TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Four years in education, two as a substitute (for three school districts), and two as an instructional assistant for a middle school, grades 6-8. My wife is a teacher too, she's an 11th grade high school ELA teacher, with certifications in Special Education, Secondary English, and Secondary Social Studies, with about seven years of experience. I have an undergraduate degree in Graphic Design and Fine Art from Park University, but I've spent the last three years working on a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction (art content) at the University of Missouri Kansas City. I will student teach Spring 2016. Working as an instructional assistant, I move around a lot. I have had the great luxury of spending a lot of time in a number of various classroom settings. I've learned a lot from watching teachers struggle, succeed, and all together fall apart. To provide you with some insight into the school I work at, It's in a poor community (73% free and reduced lunch), and it's incredibly culturally diverse. There are somewhere around 30 different languages spoken. I've worked with students from all walks of life. A lot of my experience stems from working with behavioral, pull out, 504, special needs, functional, or mild-to-moderate students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe each student deserves a fair an equal education relative to their own circumstances and learning needs. I believe in building unique relationships with each and EVERY student so that in turn, I can develop a curriculum that is purposeful, relevant, and culturally inclusive to the individual. Anything less, is unacceptable.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Working with students everyday, developing meaningful and purposeful relationships, and evolving as a human being is reward enough.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate degree is in Graphic design with a minor in Fine Arts. I am currently working on finishing a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Missouri Kansas City.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Aside from spending time with my wife, playing the guitar, or playing with my three cats, I spend a lot of time trying to come up with unique learning aids. At my school, if I feel there is an opportunity for me to make something for a student that would make learning more accessible to them, I go home and make it that night. I have a habit of spending an unhealthy amount of time in front of a computer, trying to problem solve for students I feel are under served. It wasn't until I worked with a teacher who I made a couple things for that it was suggested to me to make a TPT account. I had never heard of it before. Most of the things I currently post are things I'm working on for students I work with now. But, I plan on creating aids for any grade levels, I want to help streamline learning by providing practical and functional tools teachers can easily incorporate into their lesson plans. If there's ever a learning aid you think would be immediately beneficial to your students, please let me know. I will make it a priority to come up with something if it benefits or enhances the learning of a student, especially an under served student.
