TEACHING EXPERIENCE

17 years public school teaching grades 2-5 all subjects, 6-8 ELA. Trained in International Baccalaureate PYP, RTI strategies, and Common Core Curriculum design. Experience speaking and teaching basic German and French. I am also a freelance book editor and published magazine article author. I currently teach middle school ELA and am a mom to a middle school son and elementary school daughter. I am in the process of setting up a blog and changing my store name. Keep following for new ideas! "Teaching Middle School is an adventure, not a job."- Angela K. Bennett

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very animated teacher who loves getting kids actively involved in their learning! I love to let the students guide their learning whenever possible! I am known to family and friends as the "Word Nerd" or "Spelling Police" because I am always noticing misspelled words and incorrect grammar usage. I encourage students to find "Grammar Groaners" such as misspelled signs or advertisements. I love to have fun with my students and want them to develop a love of all languages- mother tongue and foreign- and to learn how to use language correctly.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I sat on the curriculum advisory committee in my school district, and was chosen to be a parent advisor on the International Baccalaureate Advisory Board in my children's school district. Aside from teaching and curriculum, I enjoy writing and editing. I was chosen to write a monthly article on parenting for a magazine in Switzerland and have edited one novel and one non-fiction book.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS in Child Development and Elementary Education-Michigan State University MA in Curriculum and Teaching- Michigan State University Trained in Primary Years Programme-International Baccalaureate Programme
