TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 4th. During my summers, I have worked as a Teacher Development Coach for the New York City Teaching Fellows in NYC and for Urban Teachers in Dallas. I loved supporting new teachers as they begun their journey into the crazy and fabulous world of education!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in joyful rigor. I've been called a "neat freak" by my students and I am highly organized, but I am no fuss when it comes to classroom decor and material prep. I love activities and materials that are purposeful, clear, and provide a lot of standards based "bang for the buck". I believe in a combination of responsive classroom and no-nonsense nurturing. While I try to run a tight ship most of the time, I also love to get silly and have a laugh with my kiddos.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I know this technically doesn't count, BUT my current class calls me the "G-O-A-T". It stands for greatest of all time and is a Tom Brady reference. Despite being Dallas Cowboys fans they got very into the Super Bowl this year. I've been told by the boys that this is a HUGE honor ;)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate degree was a major in business and a minor in history. 2 years into working in the business world, I went back to school to obtain my teaching certification and master's in childhood ed. I haven't looked back since!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching has been a part of my identity for the last decade. Last summer, a job opportunity for my fiancé moved us from NYC to Dallas. As we prepared to move, I experienced a moment where the possibilities seemed endless. It was in those moments, riding the subway at 6:30am to school in Brooklyn, that I saw my fantasies come true in montages of potential realities. I was a certified Pilates instructor. I was taking coffee breaks and long walks during my lunch hour at my 9-5 desk job. I was a real estate broker leasing fancy apartments to eager young professionals. I was a nurse helping patients at their most vulnerable moments. Albeit short lived, the fantasies were an enjoyable escape of the constant “Ms. Jaffe’s”, and test prep, and mediating of relationships between today’s 10 year olds. Fast forward to our arrival in Dallas, I was offered a 3rd grade position at a local school and was quickly reminded of my reality: I AM A TEACHER. It’s in my blood. Even when the grass is greener feeling arises, I know that I am meant to be in the world of education. That is where I can make my footprint on our community. Something I so desperately want to do. And even if it is just a teeny, weeny, little dusting, barely visible to anyone on the outside, I owe it to myself to challenge self-doubt and try.
