TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! I have been a teacher since 2012. I went to college knowing that I wanted to be a teacher, but did not want to take the traditional route with all of the pedagogy courses. Instead, I majored in English with a focus on Creative Writing and minored in Speech and Speech Communications. After a year in the workforce I found myself bored to death at every job and decided it was time to go back and earn my Master's in Teaching to chase my dream. Since then, I spent three years in the classroom teaching senior English and Creative Writing I and II. At the end of my third year in the classroom I married a man in the Air Force and we relocated to Kansas where I took a job at a virtual school in 2015. Since then I have spent a lot of my time rewriting all of the curriculum purchased for my classes because I feel that students are not learning or being encouraged to be creative and grow. My goal in teaching is to inspire every kid to believe that s/he has potential and just needs to learn how to find his own set of skills and passion.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very creative and open teacher. My classroom was generally a little loud and very interactive. I believe that English should not be solely focused on reading a novel and writing a paper about it. I like to give my students room to make decisions about their work and allow them to show their own creativity. Even in the virtual setting I provide my students with a lot of freedom and choices in the work they complete, so that they may relate to and care about what they are doing.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I became a high school teacher because I wanted to help young adults realize that dreams are possible. My entire life I loved reading and writing, but when I got to high school I found myself using a lot of Spark Notes and relying on class discussions to help me write my English papers. I hated this and decided that I wanted to be a teacher so that I could help students find what they liked about reading and writing. I am not a perfect teacher, far from it actually. But I am a teacher who desperately wants kids to find just one book they didn't mind reading and a sense of hope. Hope that while they had never previously passed an English class, they could be successful in reading and writing. Every day I try to create and rewrite my lessons based on what my students are showing interest in. I want them to care about school and connect with the learning that is 'forced' on them. I would love to help you do the same!
