I have experience as a credentialed high school health teacher; however, my fieldwork experience was primarily in middle school health classes. I also taught college health courses. I took a break from teaching and obtained a graduate degree in school psychology. Now, I have experience providing academic, social-emotional, and behavioral interventions that benefit students. In addition, I have experience providing consultation services to teachers and parents.
I used a student-centered approach to learning. I also used a reflective teaching approach to inform my practice. I often asked students to evaluate my lessons and sought their advice about whether or not the lessons should be used again for the next school year. Why? I wanted my lessons to be engaging and informative.
