I am a veteran 6th grade teacher. I have taught in public and private schools. I have taught in the self-contained elementary environment and in the middle school environment. In middle school I primarily teach 6th grade social studies, but have also taught study skills, 6th grade English, and computer applications. I have mentored colleagues, taught professional development sessions, and written curriculum at the request of my school district. Check out my blog at http://www.teachlikemidgley.com
I am well known for my strong classroom management and the high expectations I maintain for my students and myself. My style incorporates newer strategies and technologies while also maintaining core academic fundamentals. I also believe there must be a balance between teacher-directed and student-directed activities and learning experiences. I strive to prepare my students to be self-driven learners and responsible, successful students.
Yet to be added
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in the spring of 2003. I earned my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Cambridge College in the fall of 2007. I am state certified to teach K-8. I maintain the status of being highly qualified by my state to teach elementary, middle school social studies, and middle school mathematics.
I live in the beautiful state of Alaska with my husband and 2 pups. I enjoy spending my time volunteering for the Golden Retriever Rescue and in addition to spending time with my own pups, reading, gardening, and snow machining.
