TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for two and a half years; two full years as an integrated social studies teacher and half a year as an aide for various students. During my time teaching social studies, I have taught world history, sociology, and economics. I will be teaching government for the first time this coming fall.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a big believer in student-centered learning. My class consists of a variety of different activities including group projects and simulations. I do have Power Point presentations for notes, however, most of my class revolves around the students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I recently wrote a grant where I received the necessary funds to purchase a classroom set of Google Cardboard headsets for virtual reality experiences.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Baldwin Wallace University where I graduated with a degree in AYA Integrated Social Studies. I also earned a minor in mathematics. I currently attend graduate school at Ashland University where I am focusing on American history and government.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Along with teaching, I coach two sports. I have found that coaching and teaching go hand-in-hand. A lot of the strategies I use for teaching are applicable to coaching. I truly enjoy working with students and helping them achieve their goals both in school and in life.

Teachers Pay Teachers

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
