TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As a current Special Education teacher who has 25 years in the classroom, I feel confident that my work experiences are valuable and can make a difference as we work to support the intellectual and emotional development of our students. As we instill these character values in our students they become second nature and our students then carry these values from the classroom to their daily lives and then into the work place. I have taught in a variety of locations: Ganado, Arizona- Navajo Indian Reservation- ELA Special Education in grades 7,8,9 Regional #7 High School in northwestern Connecticut Special Education ELA and group values class East Brunswick, NJ- middle schools self contained and resource classes Marlboro, NJ- resource classes Chestnut Ridge Middle School- Washington Township, NJ resource and ICR for ELA, social studies, science, math, Spanish

MY TEACHING STYLE

I know that teachers are always inquisitive and driven to find what is best for their students. I have worked for the past nine years on developing and orchestrating a character education program for my school. I feel that character education can go hand in hand with the rigor of our standards based curriculum. The dynamics, challenges and classroom environments are constantly changing and it is our responsibility as teachers to change with the times and seek the best possible solutions to address these trends. One of the key challenges, I believe, is the communication, the commitment and by-in from teachers, staff and parents to work together as a team. For a character education program to work, everyone in the school must take some responsibility to facilitate its success. This takes time and consistent work but in the end the school climate will reflect a sense of togetherness. As I witnessed the changes in our school, I felt compelled to gather all this information and share it with others. Over the last four years, I have attended and conducted many workshops, training seminars and meetings on character education.
