TEACHING EXPERIENCE

7 yrs of Experience in 9-12 education 3 yrs of experience in 6-8 education 2 yrs of experience in 5th grade education

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a proponent of project based learning, and experiential education. All of my units end in a student centered learning task, designed to deepen their understanding of the content while honing their reading, writing and research skills. I believe that students learn best when they are pushed to experience the content through the eyes of those that lived during the time, and each one of my products reflects that philosophy.
