TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been working in the classroom for nearly twelve years. I started out as a Teaching Assistant to my favourite English teacher, when I was sixteen, and then immediately began working as a substitute teacher while I worked toward my degrees in English-American Literature and Secondary English Education. Once I earned my BA, in 2013, I began teaching full time at the High School level. I took a year off to emmigrate to the United Kingdom, and I am currently working in England at the Middle School level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Reciprocal, student based learning, & Socratic instruction, outlined w/ Marzano Domain 1.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Consistently awarded Highly Effective according to Marzano evaluations.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Alumna of University of South Florida

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching While Catfeinated was started as an excuse to polish up some of my existing lesson plans, and to make a bit of extra money during my move from the US to the UK. I miss the American curriculum a great deal, and use TWC as my excuse to percolate new ideas for literature not on the UK curriculum, and not suitable for the age group I'm currently teaching.
