TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Special education (grades 6-12+): 5 years English (grades 9-11): 3 summers Librarian (vocational college and public): 4 years and counting

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student-centered, teacher-centered, inquiry-based... No one way is best. My approach is to try to make it fun. Sometimes that's by keeping it simple. Sometimes it's by asking students to think outside the box.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Three minigrants awarded by two local foundations for the support of special education classrooms.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master of Library and Information Science, May 2013. B.A. English - May 2008.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm an animal-loving amateur genealogist by night and a public librarian by day. I must have the best job in the world. I love seeing all the new (and old!) books coming into the library. I miss working in education, though, and TPT is the outlet for that. I always learn something when making a lesson or unit plan. I love to read, I love helping people find books, and I love seeing reluctant readers have enjoyable experiences with literature. I love genealogy. I would love to see students of all ages gain experience interviewing the adults in their lives. I love animals. Please have your pets spayed/neutered! Thanks for stopping by -- would love it if you'd follow Read a Little Dream!
