TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My first teaching experience was in a Title One school. I was hired as their first remedial Reading Teacher for 7-12 graders and walked into my first classroom without a curriculum. While creating it, I pursued a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Since I began my career as a single teacher in a small school, I also became the Speech Coach, junior high basketball head coach, high school Track and Field Coach, Musical Director, and even worked as a Nebraska State Writing Rater for many years. After teaching there for five years, I found out I was expecting our first child. Since 2012 I've been a stay-at-home mom, homeschooling for the last two years, and working part-time at our local library as the Technology and Cataloguing Librarian. I also spent time working with a local Community College to teach some adult education programs, which I thoroughly enjoyed. My latest endeavor as a Reading Tutor, 5-6 grade Bible Study Teacher and homeschool mom have been my greatest joy yet; inspiring the next generation of readers - that is my calling.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Demonstrator and Facilitator (Varies based on particular class and skill being taught.)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'll just list my favorites: Kimball Public Schools New Staff Outstanding Performance (2007-2008) and Middle Park H.S. W.T. Weatherill Citizen Athlete of the Year.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In 2007 I graduated as an English Language Arts Teacher (7-12 Certification), three years later I finished my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, and I'm currently pursuing a degree as a Reading Specialist.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Going to a small NAIA private school opened the doors to participate in a lot of extra curricular such as Intercollegiate Pep and Concert Bands, Intercollegiate Basketball, while also being involved in a sorority. After graduation I took a job in a small town where I became involved in the Kimball Education Association, eventually taking on the role as Vice President (2008-2009). These experiences have given me confidence in a few different areas other than what I've already listed. I love learning how we learn and finding many ways to implement all our Learning Styles into my lessons, which is why I love the 4MAT lesson plan development. Sometimes I like to think of myself as Tech Savvy as well, but if I'm completely honest, there are other times I'd rather chuck it out the window. And a little unrelated, I got my creative/artsy thumb from my very talented mother who only gave me a pinky of her talent.
