TEACHING EXPERIENCE

A career switcher with 22 years corporate experience and 3 years teaching experience at the middle school level, teaching computers, Tech Ed, and video production.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My motto is: hands-on turns brains on. I believe the best learning comes when kids first have an ACTIVE EXPERIENCE with something new. Those experiences ignite their natural curiosity, which opens the door for us as teachers to very casually TEACH about the experience. I love to start a lesson by placing a group of select items out on a table and telling the students to "build something that..." (having to do with our upcoming lesson). I give them a day or two to work independently. They make all kinds of mistakes, and laugh a lot and generally have a really good time. And all along the way, they are coming to me and asking, "why does that..." or "how do I..." and the learning becomes something they drive themselves, and IT IS WONDERFUL! It opens the lesson in an environment of curiosity and excitement. I am a career switcher, entering the teaching profession after 20+ years as a mid-level executive. I never had any job that was solely...math. Or science. Or technology. Even the most specialized career demands interdisciplinary skills. So why do we teach our students in silos? Silos are for corn, not for education. That's why my site is called iSTEMware. It's about integrative STEM lessons that are built around hands-on activity and experience.
