TEACHING EXPERIENCE

22 years grades 1-6. Five years special education. Four years Math. Some years, I taught multiple subjects, others, just one. I have worked in two states, but primarily Texas. I work with a lot of ESL students, and GT as well. Very diverse groupings.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in some form of direct teach, I do, we do, you do...but I also believe that students need to take new concepts and assimilate them into their world. Concepts become concrete when they use them, see a need for them, and practice using them.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

4.0 GPA (Masters in Education) Published one children's book, a beginner reader. Wrote poems "Raining Cats and Dogs and other Figurative Language Poems".

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. Education / English major M.S. Education Certificates: ESL/GT/Administration

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After 21 years, I continue to evolve as a teacher. Simply put, "Times are always changing". With the use of technology to steal children's attention, it is making it harder and harder for us to get and keep their attention, and harder to make things relevant to them. Any time that we can get them using their skills in real life situations, especially if we can pull in technology, that's when the life time learning takes place. That's when the "ah ha" moments come. Also, let's face it...when students are so engaged in a project that you simply become the facilitator, then it makes our jobs easier as well.
