TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My name is Kathryn Holmes (I go by Katy). So yes, my name is Katy Holmes...so exciting right?! :) Anyway, I am certified to teach 4-8 grade Science, EC-12 Health, and Physical Education. I have eight years years of experience in both teaching and coaching. I have taught middle school science as well as coached one or more of the following sports: volleyball, basketball, track, and soccer. I have also taught Health for two years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

1. I want to get kids fired up to be life-long learners while teaching in an innovative and engaging environment. Teaching is a combination of both academics and entertainment and if the kids are having fun, they are learning. 2. I enjoy the interactions with all students and I truly love witnessing the “aha moment”. This is what drives me to success and gets the kids energized when the end results are seen. This is the passion piece that gets students engaged and curious. 3. Assessing students effectively through formative and summative practices. 4. Formative assessments are used to wrap up daily lessons & objectives and include the following: exit tickets, entrance tickets, games, interactive websites, whiteboards, pre-tests, and use of technology through e-instruction. 5. Summative assessments cover a longer period of time and include the following: curriculum unit tests, project based learning, semester exams, independent performance analysis, and intensive quizzes. 6. In my Pre-AP classes we complete several mini-projects and 2-3 longer projects. The longer projects follow the Project Based Learning (PBL) school of thought. PBL is designed to engage student interest and motivation. These projects are “intended to answer a question or solve problems and normally reflect the type of learning and work people do in the everyday world.” Throughout the project students are incorporating 21st century learning skills such as working in groups cooperatively, implementing technology, solving problems, and developing communication skills. 7. My regular classes and special needs students have a hard time with vocabulary and Science is extremely heavy in this area. We have implemented the word of the day which we use as our warm-ups. We then take the words and use them on our word wall. The word wall includes the word itself, the definition, a picture, and using the word in a sentence. I continue to use entrance tickets and exit tickets as a formative assessment tool to see which kids are not grasping the idea. This further helps me identify which students to pull for our tutoring sessions after school. Other tactics include interactive computer websites and competitive games such as Jeopardy, password, flyswatter, and basketball. I believe that using many different teaching avenues is the most effective way to reach these students. 8. Implementing labs in the classroom that require higher-level thinking. Students are required to complete inquiry-based labs and lessons too. 9. In the past 3 years I have coached volleyball, track, and basketball. I played competitive soccer and volleyball for several years so those are my two best sports. I would be available for coaching 1-2 sports if there is a need. 10. Other trainings & certificates held: E-instruction, Airslate, Coached Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Track, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Science Lab Safety Trained, Interactive Journaling and Note Taking Trained, Gifted and Talented Differentiated Instruction, Laying the Foundations Pre-AP program, UIL Rules Compliance Trained, CPR certified, conduct summer volleyball workshops, Project Based Learning trained

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I don't have any official rewards I can think of that really come to mind...what teacher has time to keep track and record of all that? Sure I have honors/rewards...but what matters is the lessons I make and if it makes sense for your students.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Texas A&M University, College Station, TX

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I do know this. The people I work with love my lessons and I am happy to share...so that's why I decided to put my stuff on here in hopes it will help others (and maybe me too!).
