TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a proud military brat and DoDDS student. My father was in the Air Force and I started school at Bitburg Elementary and graduated from Zweibrücken High School. My whole reason for becoming a teacher was to return to Germany to teach for DoDDS. I feel like I am living the American Dream. My BA is in English and History; my master’s degree is in Education with an emphasis on literacy and reading. It seems unbelievable to me that this is my 23rd year of teaching. I taught in the U.S. for eleven years and have been in Germany for the last twelve. I am trained by the College Board in both AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature, with my most recent training taking place in Berlin in 2013. In 2009 I was one of 30 teachers nationwide who spent three weeks in California studying politics and the Constitution as part of a grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities. I did my 6+1 Traits of writing with Vicki Spandel and completed the Jeff Wilhelm literacy institute. I was published in Vogue magazine in 1996, and in 2012 I was published in Transforming Writing in the Digital Age: Techniques for Grades 5-12, by Thomas Devere Wolsey and Dana L. Grisham. In 2014 I was published in two books: Mining Complex Text; Using and Creating GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS to Grasp Content and Share New Understandings, by Thomas Devere Wolsey, Vol 1 Grades 2-5 and Vol 2 Grades 6-12.

MY TEACHING STYLE

“Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you're put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.” -Vincent van Gogh
