TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an 13th year teacher of Humanities, a combination of literacy and social studies. I taught 7th grade Humanities for 2 years and am currently in my 11th year of teaching 6th grade Humanities. If there is topic I don't have a lesson on, check out my sisters store!: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Navigating-History

MY TEACHING STYLE

With my teaching style, I like to incorporate all types of resources to meet all different types of learning (such as readings, writing, pictures, video, music, etc). Students in my class are constantly challenged and get the most out of our class time every day. All students participate and never will you see a student with their head on their desks, slouching in their chair or without something in their hand to write with.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I majored in English, minored in History at Fordham University in NYC. Also through Fordham University, I have received my Masters Degree in Childhood Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Many of my lesson are Humanities based, and thus are a combination of Social Studies and Literacy. In the 6th grade we focus on the ancient civilization of the world. Thanks to teaching, I have been able to travel to many of the places I teach about, and always try to incorporate as much as I can from my travel into my lesson.
