TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Overall, I have 5 years teaching experience. I began out of college in South Bend, Indiana teaching 2nd Grade. This was my first solo teaching experience in the classroom, and quickly became overwhelmed by the implementation of curriculums and state- or district-mandated testing. By organizing and analyzing data trends, I quickly learned to seek out authentic materials that would not only help me in my immediate planning and instruction, but would set my students up for success in the classroom. In the summer of 2012, I moved to Chicago, Illinois where I became hooked on urban education. I felt that as a teacher, I had a responsibility and calling to urgently attempt to close the achievement gap one would seemingly find in underprivileged neighborhoods. I began a kindergarten teaching position with Piccolo School of Excellence, a part of Academy for Urban School Leadership; a turnaround organization that turns-around chronically underperforming schools. While the work was not easy given the high and immediate expectation for teachers not to fail their students, and in-turn, for the students to not fail themselves, I became increasingly focused and motivated to commit myself to being the best teacher I could be for my well-deserving students. It was not until my second year, as a 2nd grade teacher, at Piccolo, that I truly embraced differentiating and supplementing materials to meet the individual needs of my students. In the summer of 2015, my husband and I decided to move cross-country to Washington state. Here, I started teaching Kindergarten in a school polar opposite to my urban teaching experiences. Next year (2016-2017) I will be leaving the comforts of primary to teach 4th grade where. I am looking forward to continuing my commitment to meeting the individual needs of all my students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to teach to a classroom climate and culture where opportunities are given to all students to accomplish their personal best, become responsible and productive citizens, and embrace lifelong learning in a safe and positive environment. I embrace a lifelong commitment to learning, by which I hope to inspire my students, by participating in as many professional development opportunity as I am afforded so that I may collaborate with honorable and esteemed educators to improve my own practice for the benefit of my students.
