TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Va and US History and Va and US government for 16 years. I teach many at risk students and know first hand the challenges that teachers face. I have created many student centered activities based on brain based learning techniques aimed at reaching challenged students as well as those who have less difficulty.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style varies from class to class. Some classes do better with a majority of student centered, hands on type activities while others do better with more traditional direct instruction methods. It really depends on the student population in each class and what their needs are. I make every effort to present the content in multiple ways to reach all learning styles in each class. Most of my activities have a visual aspect as a huge number of my students typically test as visual learners.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year 2010

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I was a typical, apathetic high school student, maintaing a C average. However when I transitioned to college I discovered I really loved learning. The difference was in the teaching. High school teachers depended on worksheets. College required I think. I ended up graduating college with a 3.98 gpa out of 4. My love for history led to me not only graduating with honors from the College of Staten Island, CUNY but also speaking at graduation for the History department. I attempt to create activities that challenge my students to think and to inspire the same love for history that I myself devleloped.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
