TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have taught 6th grade together for the past 7 years and have had a blast doing it! Working together without a math series for the past six years, we have had to create a lot of the materials and games that we utilize on a daily basis. We have found them to be very successful in our classrooms, and we would like to share them with all of you!

MY TEACHING STYLE

We like to challenge our students by opening up each lesson with an inquiry based question. We feel that students are more likely to remember and understand the information when they are actively engaged at the beginning of the lesson. We also try to incorporate intensive small group instruction within our daily lessons. We try to conclude each lesson with a game that requires them to apply not only the specific skills taught that day, but also review previously learned material.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In the past six years, 92% or more of our students have achieved proficiency on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment. We were asked our second year of teaching to present at a three-day state-wide conference on school improvement along with several of our colleagues.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Heather graduated from St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA with a BS in Psychology and an Elementary Education Certification. Sarah graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA with a BS in Psychology and an Elementary Education Certification.
