TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades for fourteen years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a highly visual, auditory, and tactile learner....thus my style of teaching reflects this. Teaching science, social studies, & language arts are by far my personal favorites, in fact my students might consider SS my favorite given how we act out American history, Greek myths, Roman history, and ancient Egyptian history as we read about it and learn it. It wouldn't be unusual to see the class dressed in colonial wear as we put Anne Hutchinson on trial or to see us paying taxes (w/ bingo chips) as we learn about the triangular trade routes or even standing on desk tops shouting "No Taxation Without Representation!" ..... before the north & south could reunite, the class was split in half and they debated issues until they reached a compromise. Using the 5E science instructional methods are also a personal favorite as this approach lends itself incredibly well to active learning! I'm continuously impressed by the gains that struggling students make in science through active engagement in science. "Lab Day" brings cheers from all of the students! Learning becomes intrinsically motivating when the students have a vested interest. I try to teach the learner, not the content; therefore my number one goal is to make learning personally relevant to each child. Tough order, but I'm trying! Children have to have a vested interest in what they are learning in order to be intrinsically motivated to learn. When the learning becomes personal to them, they ask more questions and probe even further on their own than I could ever push them. I WANT them to wonder about everything! My best ideas and teaching come to me as a result of what the children want to know. I have a great deal of autonomy in teaching the way I am best suited and my students have a great deal of room to be inquisitive and pursue their interests. I believe in teaching the learner, teaching the reader, teaching the thinker - NOT teaching the text. The text is simply a resource. By teaching children how to think, they can think for themselves. By teaching them how to learn, they can become lifelong learners. By teaching students how to be a good reader, they can become lifelong readers and love every minute of it! I get excited about learning, and I explicitly model it for and with the learners! Charts - Charts - Charts. LOVE the depth of complexity texts that accompany content in science and social studies nowadays as compared to back in 2001 when I started teaching. The coding and analyzing of relevant texts through the content areas is the best thing that's happened in education in a very long time! I see the benefits in the students and the cohesiveness among content area teachers has blossomed as well. One thing my students learn by the end of the year is that I do not have all of the answers, but they have the resources and opportunities available to them to make informed decisions and seek out their own answers. I prefer to be their guide or facilitator.....even allow them to bounce questions off of me and teach them to participate in group discussions that mirror real life. I am a HUGE fan of Kagan Cooperative Learning structures! It's one of the best week-long professional development opportunities that I've ever participated in and didn't know I needed! It's a perfect marriage when blended with Learning Focused Schools strategies.
