TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach at two schools throughout the calendar year. During the summer I teach World History at Loyola Academy, a Jesuit College Preparatory Academy. During the regular school year I teach U.S. Government and Geography at public school along Chicago's North Shore. I serve as the Team Leader for my grade-level, the RtI data manager for my smaller learning community, the curriculum designer and manager for U.S. Government and Geography, and I am a technology leader in the Lighthouse Lead Learner Committee.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Philosophy of Education: Our world needs people who are unafraid and able to question authority, challenge belief paradigms, and reshape society for the greater good. A powerful education should nurture lifelong learners that are curious, skeptical, and dedicated to using their intelligence to address the challenges and injustices of our world. My vision for this model of education begins with passionate and dedicated teachers who strive to liberate, inspire, and enlighten their students. The teacher should not direct student learning, but meaningfully facilitate it. Education is a living art designed to be built upon, shaped, challenged, changed, and even deconstructed by students. The teacher must facilitate and guide this process, but not interfere with or devalue the unique ways students learn and construct knowledge. This requires the teacher to recognize that while he is a teacher to his students, he remains a student who can learn from his students. This realization results in a powerful and authentic learning community within the classroom. The model for education and teachers I have described creates lifelong learners who can change their communities. Our children command the future of our world, and we entrust teachers to prepare them for this enormous responsibility. Students deserve teachers who understand the importance of their position and who teach as if the world depends on it, because it does.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My name is Frank and I am happily married and hoping to have some little ones in the house soon! I'm a pretty down to earth guy who loves teaching, learning, and my family. Everything you see on my store page was a work of love and passion. I never thought I would sell any of my work because it was so personal to me, but the burden of student loans makes it a necessity. I hope that you find my prices reasonable and that you find as much joy in implementing my lessons, activities, and projects as I did. I can't wait to hear what you think! Thank you for supporting me!
