TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an 8th grade science teacher as well as a college professor in the education department's credential program. I love every minute of both classrooms! My experience in the classroom has taught me that middle schoolers are special and they require special instruction. My materials have been designed with middle schoolers in mind (as well as the teachers who are with them day after day).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love hands-on activities and exploration based learning. I believe that as educators we should be educating the WHOLE child and not just the learner in our classroom; we must wear many hats (most of which have nothing to do with our classroom subject). Many of the products in my store reflect this teaching stye. To learn more about my teaching style, check out my blog: www.theardentteacher.com

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have received an award for excellence in teaching, presented my research on increasing academic success at an international conference (AERA), received the outstanding thesis award for my masters research and have been nominated as the Science Teacher of the Year.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my Masters of Education in curriculum development and instruction as well as a specialized single subject credential in geo-sciences. My Bachelors is in BioPhysical and Environmental Geography. Before I became a teacher, I worked at an engineering firm as a staff Scientist and GIS specialist.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I absolutely love teaching and I hope you find inspiration here from some of the things I have created! Enjoy!! Check out my blog: TheArdentTeacher.com
