TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently working my dream job as a 2nd grade teacher and couldn't be happier! I previously taught 7th and 8th grade ELA, social studies/history, and various electives (journalism, reading study skills, Read 180) for 7 years. I was also an instructional coach in my school district, specializing in secondary ELA, literacy across the content areas, and assessment.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student-centered focus, with an emphasis on cooperative engagement strategies, student-choice, and fun through learning! Lover of flexible seating. Growth mindset cheerleader. A reformed math hater!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

2012 Teacher of the Year 2011 Reading Comprehension Queen

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction, focusing on adolescent literacy Multiple Subject Teaching Credential BA in Journalism

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm a reformed math hater. I always struggled with learning and doing math, from pretty much 3rd grade on, and sought to avoid it as much as possible throughout life. I even allowed my fear of math to stop me from persuing many of the science classes I was interested in taking because of the math requirements. I share all of that because I now love teaching math to my students. My own struggles have fueled my desire to help my students understand the why of math, as well as providing them with a full toolbox of strategies to call on. I encourage them to develop their math brands, and employ a lot of growth mindset and the power of yet when they struggle. I also share my own personal math difficulties with them throughout the year, to show it's not something you are born good at.
