TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have seven years teaching experience at the high school level. My main focus is ELA, however I have taught U.S. History and social studies as well. I have taught all levels of students from honors (PreAP) to foundations and everything in between. I have experience team-teaching in a U.S. History/American lit blended class well where I was able to channel my background in U.S. History and combine it with my skills in ELA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is pragmatic, but I tend toward letting students do most of the talking. I'm the facilitator. I want them to figure things out on their own that the learning may be more relevant and meaningful. Students sit in four person teams and I employ a variety of cooperative learning strategies in my pedagogy, most notably Kagan. Moreover, I take great care to develop assessments and lessons that incorporate real world contexts to make learning more relevant.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Stories and connecting stories to our loves is my first and truest love. I love creating activities where students can apply learning to multiple contexts that have relevance outside the classroom.
