TEACHING EXPERIENCE

First-year teacher; Practicums in 11th grade, 9th grade, 7th grade and 6th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a strong belief that building positive relationships in the classroom is one of the most important aspects of teaching. I create this relationship by getting business done while incorporating fun in the classroom. I also believe that rigor and high expectations are what keep students engaged and performing well in my classroom.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Colorado State University and the STEPP program there, which is one of the most prestigious teacher preparation programs in the country. While being a part of the STEPP program, I taught a semester each in 6th grade, 7th grade, and 9th grade. As a student teacher, I took over an 11th grade English class and co-taught an 11th grade AP Language class. I graduated with an English Degree of Arts and Sciences, a minor in Anthropology, and a Colorado Education License. I plan on beginning to work on my Masters of Education and getting certified in Social Studies this summer.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I currently volunteer for a juvenile probation mentoring program as well as Adopt A US Soldier-a nonprofit organization that sends deployed soldiers supplies and letters from home. I live and teach in Central Virginia, and have both a Colorado and a Virginia teaching license.
