TEACHING EXPERIENCE

From an early age I knew that teaching was my destiny. Throughout my career I have taught Pre-K through 8th grade, but have found my home in the 6th grade. I have also taught English as a 2nd language around the world to children and adults. My love of technology led me to become a Certified SMART Board trainer. As a child I was given the message by my math teachers that math was not my strength. But, as a teacher I realized it was not my weakness, but the weakness of those teachers who did not figure out how to teach me so I could learn the mathematical concepts. Because of this experience I became a coach for a Mathletes team and strive to teach math in a way all of students can master the concepts. Since I believe in teaching the whole child I became trained to be a Character Counts educator. For me, learning is a life long endeavor. I model it daily in my classroom and try to inspire all of my students will be life long learners as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strongly believe in Project/Inquiry Based learning and Differentiated Instruction. There is no such thing as a cookie-cutter lesson. Each student is unique bringing his/her own gifts into the room. I strive to empower my students to be independent thinkers and inspire them to be positive forces in the world. My classroom: structured-yet spontaneous, nurturing-yet strict, challenging-yet relaxed. My students: know that I believe in each of them, reach/surpass the individual academic or social goals we (the student and I) set, are excited about learning!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

During high school I was an assistant teacher and throughout college I taught preschoolers. Post college I spent several years teaching English around the world and while in graduate school I substitute taught in K-8 classes. It was during graduate school that I discovered that my path to a publish and perish career was not where my passionate journey. Being in K-8 classrooms sparked a creative and dedicated fire. I left my PhD. program after two years, earning a MA, but felt as if a new world had opened up for me. The Elementary classroom is where I belong. I will continue to teach and create until I no longer can.
