TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Erin is currently on her fifth year of teaching high school science. She has taught many courses including: Physical Science, Pre-chemistry, Ecology, Biology, Forensic Science, Biotechnology, and Kingdoms of Life. She is also the technology integration coach at her school. She focuses on helping co-workers integrate technology into their classrooms. Emily is also on her fifth year of teaching. She has taught at both the middle school and high school level. She has taught courses including: health, general science, biology, and anatomy and physiology. She is also the curriculum coordinator at her school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Erin has a strong passion for student learning. She enjoys helping students see the value in learning, rather than the points they receive. With this said, she has implemented standards-based grading and assessing into her classroom and is absolutely loving the focus it puts on student responsibility and learning. She no longer grades homework or quizzes. Rather, she uses formative assessment for practice. It shows both herself and the student where they are in terms of mastery of a specific learning target/standard. They are only graded on the end product or the summative assessment. This way, they are not penalized for not mastering a standard, if they show her within their own pace of learning, that they can master it. Erin also heavily uses technology in each of her lessons, making the full use of the resources students have access to. Emily has a bit of a different teaching style. As the high school's curriculum coordinator, she is collaborating closely with the English department on creating a literacy-based science curriculum for her classroom. Emily also uses an inquiry based science curriculum to engage students and keep them motivated through the school year. Students are challenged through rigorous, inquiry-based curriculum, helping them apply content material to their everyday lives.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Both Emily and Erin have been part of a facilitating team for the Professional Learning Communities within their school systems. Erin has been a part of the ipad leadership team and has incorporated ipad use in her classroom. She has been part of the entire ipad implementation planning process. Emily is the curriculum coordinator for her school system and works with other content areas to improve cross-curricular learning.
