TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We all have experience teaching English (including general-level classes at grades 8-12, remediation courses, collaborative classes, creative writing, and upper-level courses such as Dual Enrollment and AP Literature). We are all Instructional Technology Resource Teachers and work extensively on the integration of technology into classroom instruction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All of us value student-centered teaching where the teacher functions as a facilitator of learning. Technology is important to us when it gives students agency and helps to support a growth mindset. We have increasingly valued student voice, choice, and empowerment; young adult literature; and inquiry learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

A joy that we've had as a team is the establishment of a nontraditional English course, Foundations for the Future. This course has given us a place to try out individualized, student-centered learning focusing on the students' passions and interests. We've worked to integrate STEM tools and technology in a way that complements the strengths of the students.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Jen attended Bridgewater College and earned her Masters in Literature at JMU. Sara attended JMU and received her Masters in Business Administration there. Ashley attended Furman University and got her Masters in Education at Georgetown College.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Jen was born in West Virginia and has lived and worked in the Virginia for the duration of her teaching career, which she started in 2000. Sara was born in Virginia and worked in finance in New Jersey before coming back to Virginia to work as a teacher in 2008. Ashley was born in Georgia and began teaching in 2004 in South Carolina; she then taught in Japan and Kentucky before moving to Virginia, where she currently teaches. All three are co-hosts on Unabridged Podcast, available to listen to on iTunes and other podcast applications. Find the podcast on Facebook and Instagram at the handle @unabridgedpod .
