TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a bachelor's in History, Master's in Education, and Education Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership. I am Nationally Board Certified. I have a diverse Social Studies teaching background that includes 7th Grade Geography, 8th Grade American History, 6-8th grade Computer Applications, 9th Grade World History, High School Economics, High School World History, and High School American Government. I also write Social Studies curriculum for the Tennessee Department of Education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very interactive teacher, and I believe in hands on learning, including simulations, game-based learning, cooperative grouping, music and movie-based multimedia projects, and other strategies for keeping the learning engaging. I also see myself as a content-based reading teacher, particularly as common core begins in my classroom this year. I believe in teaching my students to read complex academically complex texts with comprehension and fluency and to help them shift from a persuasive writing style to an argumentative writing style.
