Often times students don't know what to underline or look for when a teacher tells them to annotate or closely read a text. In the past my students would simply underline or highlight every line which doesn't teach them anything. I have created a

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my 7th year of teaching and have taught grades 10-12. I switch off between 10th and 11th grade, but consistently teach seniors in a Syracuse University Writing 105 (SUPA) course. Throughout the years I have also taught a SAT prep course, a Modern Literature course, Journalism, summer school, and I tutor students privately for the Common Core Regents Exam. I typically have 1-3 inclusion classes with skill levels ranging from students who were or are in a self contained setting to honor students. This has taught me how to differentiate instruction and modify/accommodate curriculum to meet all of the students' needs. Teaching different grade levels and skill levels keeps me on my toes and forces me to come up with innovative and engaging material!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love a structured, discussion/group based classroom! My best days are when the students are actively engaged in small and large group discussions and collaborating. Almost everything I do involves some type of hands-on activity and interaction with peers. I also model what I expect from my students whether that be a writing assignment, a discussion strategy such as a socratic seminar, or how to closely read and annotate. I believe that students learn the best when they understand their expectations and are given strong examples. Writing is a focal point and I spend a lot of time teaching HOW to write, revising and drafting, and grammar. I try to incorporate writing as much as possible with both formal and informal assignments. This year I am also dabbling into some new technology to spice things up a bit so be on the look out for some lessons surrounding new ways to increase learning and engagement.
