TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught in Florida for the past six school years; I hold my professional teaching certificate in English 6-12 with ESOL and Gifted endorsements. I've taught regular, advanced/honors, and Cambridge International Courses (similar to AP/IB). My BS is in English Language Arts Education and my MA in Gifted Education. I've also served as a Gifted Coordinator.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Having primarily taught 80-90 minute blocks, I know how important it is that my students don't just "sit and get"; you have to chunk your lesson so they are able to receive direct instruction when necessary, but are mainly involved in student-centered learning. I like stations/centers (they have value even in secondary ed.), but there are many times where students need to work individually before they can work in a group (you need to teach them how to do this, too).

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Certified Cambridge International Examinations teacher, Presenter at the Florida Association for the Gifted on differentiated writing instruction, Teacher of the Month: March 2015.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a proud product of the Miami-Dade public school system, grade 1-12. After high school, I headed up to UCF where I earned a BS in English Language Arts Education (inspired by my own 10th grade English teacher). In the Spring of 2015, I graduated from USF with my MA in Gifted Education, as differentiating instruction is a true passion of mine, challenging, but fulfilling.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Although teaching is my passion, I love to craft (a huge Cricut fan) and cook for my family. I've been happily married and settled in the Tampa area for three years now. A furry cat friend (Rusty) joined us in January of 2015; my husband and I are obsessed with him.
