TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twitch & Fidget is a collaborative storefront involving the blood, sweat, and tears (a large dose of snark doesn't hurt) from two middle school literacy educators. With 20+ years of teaching between them and a myriad certificates to boot, Twitch & Fidget aim at combining equal parts strategic instruction and inquiry founded firmly in educational philosophy and best practices. Whether, adjuncting at local universities or diagnostically testing private clients, Twitch & Fidget are constantly adjusting their instructional techniques in order to ensure that their minions are well-prepared for a literate existence.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Together, Twitch & Fidget are not your every day teaching duo. Individually, Twitch is a a backwards planner who tries to see the big picture...where are we going? What is our essential question? What enduring understandings can be filtered out? ...Cue: Domain Matrices, Differentiation Agendas and Anticipation Guides. Ever, the yin to Twitch's yang...Fidget is the creative ninja able to take a static Google Doc of standards and objectives and creating a living, breathing document making learning accessible to all learners with various levels of understandings and needs...Cue: stealth ninja tactics and all the memes necessary to reach your most difficult-to-reach students. Together #friendshipgoals

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Twitch and Fidget were recent recipients of the 2016 PTHSD Mini Grant for their "Be the Change" service/problem-based learning project. Selected from innumerable applicants for this grant, Twitch and Fidget posed to their students an opportunity for making change in the world. By completing research and observing their community, students identified local causes in which they sought to make a change and did it...funds from the grant were applied to obtaining materials for donations and activities in support of organizations dedicated to such causes as: homelessness, poverty, literacy, bullying, veteran support, animal protection and the environment. Look for this and other collaborative ventures in our storefront soon!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Fidget victoriously emerged from Caldwell College with a B.A. in English and Secondary Education with a minor in Communications for Journalism. Fidget then made the great escape from Seton Hall University with a M.A. in English because she is a nerd who wanted to know how many 20 pages papers she could write in a single semester. Answer: 3...Fidget is an adjunct professor in the English Department at both Caldwell University and Seton Hall University where she teaches the Writing 101 course to establish formal writing techniques across various styles of writing as well as further develop critical thinking skills rooted in dense higher level readings. Twitch heralds from Montclair State University with a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and M.A in Reading K-12 graduating summa cum laude and earning Outstanding Graduate Student upon commencement. In addition to holding a Standard NJ K-8 Teaching certificate and that of a NJ Reading Teacher K-12, Twitch holds a certificate as a NJ Reading Specialist, K-12. She practices as a diagnostic testing practitioner and develops dynamic, individualized literacy coaching plans for children and utilized by both teachers and parents.
