TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 7-12 grade English for eleven years. During this time, I've worked in a co-taught inclusion setting as well as with enriched and gifted / talented students. Over the past several years, I've developed an interest in teacher evaluation. To this end, I've been a leader on our school's evaluation committee and helped to educate staff about Charlotte Danielson's evaluation rubric as well as how teachers can excel in all four domains. I've also conducted a flipped classroom experience for four years. My passions at the secondary level are literacy and differentiation, but I truly enjoy all things ELA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to try new things with my students. Generally, I believe introducing new content through direct instruction via minilessons is the most successful approach for high school students, but I also use chunking throughout every class period. In this way, I move from teacher-centered to peer-driven activities and eventually independent practice. I love student-centered activities that involve students kinesthetically, musically, and creatively.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been asked to speak to new teachers about differentiation and to the entire staff about my use of the flipped classroom. I also have my reading specialist certification and two master's degrees.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor: English Master 1: Curriculum & Instruction Master 2: Reading Certification: Middle School Certification: Gifted Certification: Reading Specialist
