TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a middle school science teacher for eight years now. I have experience in 7th and 8th grade. I am now the STEM instructor at the middle school level. I also hold the titles of PLC leader, leadership team member, and science department chair.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My lessons are very fast-paced and I have my students moving around a lot. I enjoy having students compete, work in small groups, participate in whole group discussions, participate in hands-on activities, and show their skills through independent tasks. I basically plan my lessons using the following format: Bell work/Hook, Competition, Whole group instruction, Competition, Small group activity, Individual practice, and Closure. I honestly feel like I engage all students. I take pride in the student connections I make each year. My students miss my class the next year.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been named Teacher of the Year. I work at a very high achieving school so this honor means so much to me. I am surrounded by great teachers who are also looking to learn new things.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned my degree in Biology from Middle Tennessee State University in 2005.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I didn't originally go to college to be a teacher. I was a pre-med student...but I always had an inner passion to teach. I loved being a student growing up (and still enjoy sitting in a classroom). When I first graduated college, I worked as an Educational Assistant in a high school setting then decided I NEEDED to teach. I soon enrolled into a graduate program on the "alternate license" route. There I was, teaching in an 8th grade classroom with no experience...I mean...didn't even know what a "standard" was...going to grad school at night...coaching softball...and PREGNANT. What a first year! Looking back on it, it seems a lot harder than it really was. For one, I'm a very stubborn person...and two, I love teaching. I can say that I am truly doing what I was born to do. I am a mom, a wife, and a teacher. Life is good.
