TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've spent the past six years teaching in the Washington DC Public and Charter School systems. Over that time I've gained an incredible amount of experience at the teaching and administrative level that translates into student success both academically and socially. Specifically, I've focused my career on the Middle School grades, believing that those years of incredible biological and cognitive transformation have a profound impact and a child's future success.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a Special Education Teacher, my teaching style has focused on the individual needs of a student. I've developed lessons, and units, around each classes ability to connect with content differently. This has lead to a lot of trial and error, however I believe that pushing yourself and your students daily will inevitably enhance their educational experience. In that same vein, I believe that education is much more than curriculum. Students should have the ability to learn how to socialize properly, how to manage their own fears and worries, and how to control their own destiny. That is why I spent time developing developmentally appropriate material which focuses both on content as well as social/emotional growth.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in western New York, and went to the SUNY Fredonia, where I studied Sociology. That experience gave me a desire to improve the world by influencing systems. From there I went into the Inclusive Education Program at Nazareth College of Rochester, where I earned my Masters of Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In between college and graduate school, I joined the U.S. Army National Guard. With that organization I travelled the world and was able to see far flung places like Bangkok and Baghdad. I took these experiences and used them daily in my lessons and teaching delivery.
