TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching at my current public high school for 16 years, and have a total of 20 years experience in the classroom. Most of my experience is teaching high school English and journalism classes; however, for several years I taught an art history class and was also a librarian/media specialist. I teach all levels--from honors students to special education students; therefore, I'm constantly modifying my assignments to fit my students' needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I will never stop trying to foster creativity and critical thinking in my classroom no matter how many practice standardized tests I must give. In my opinion, it is more important to prepare students who can think independently and creatively than to prepare students who can score well on a two-day test in three subject areas.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from St. Ambrose University in 1994, double-majoring in English and Mass Communications: Journalism. After teaching in a small school in a special education classroom, I decided to go back to school to earn my teaching endorsement. My roles in education have included being a librarian, middle school English and reading, middle school special ed., and for the past 15 years as a high school English and journalism teacher with about six years of art history thrown in there, as well.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Published poet, editor, blogger on www.traceeorman.com and www.hungergameslessons.com, adviser for high school art and literary magazine, newspaper, and yearbook.
