TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Welcome to my shop - I am so glad you're here! I have taught for fifteen years in public school middle & high, part-time college courses, private high school, Sunday school, and was a part-time volunteer librarian. I have a degree in Humanities, English, Education, and Paralegal Studies and earned my master's degree in education. I have a Rank One in teaching. Teaching & Motivating Teens Pinterest Find my blog at: http://mirandafjordan.blogspot.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

My specialty is engaging and motivating teens by building lessons that make them want to come to school, enjoy being part of our positive, dynamic environment, question whether there is even a box to think out of, build upon their learning, and - most importantly - guiding each and every student to see the gifts that lie within themselves. Every child is gifted in their own distinct way. I like to set the stage for them to realize their gifts, develop them, and to take pride in their accomplishments and in themselves. Differentiation.
