TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught K-8 PE, 7 science; 8 Science, 6th grade math/science and ESL English. I loved every level I have worked with. I am very passionate about ESL and Science! The last 4 years I have taught 8th grade science, each year my students have out scored others in the district and the grade level. Whatever my method, it seems to be working! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a lot of technology to enhance my students learning. I challenge students to use creativity and hands on learning to develop their own educational experiences. I am direct and very authoritarian,but give students the freedom of choice and active learning. I use songs to feed information about topics to students, they sing them while they are going to lunch, taking tests, whenever they feel like it because it sticks! I am a giant fan of Youtube for these fabulous songs that can be found online. Thank you to those creative singers that are gifted with songs and put science in actions.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been awarded technology grants to allow my students to have 15 minilaptops for my classroom use. I have won a document camera, smartboard, and use of a slate. I have served on curriculum building teams, represented campus for STEM and have been looked to for mentoring within my campus. I have been selected for leadership trainings out of large amounts of applications. I have won 1st place the last 3 years in 8th grade science for my student's growth and achievements on benchmarks and state testing!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BS in Kinesiology and have taught PE, Coached, taught middles school science, and ESL English 6-8th grade. I have gone to many conferences over the years. I have spent an entire week at NASA for a gifted program for Math and Science teachers!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love teaching and working with the students today. I am inspired by many of the older generations of teachers and more so by the usage of technology within the classroom. Smartboards, cell phones, etc. Students are my life, I never look forward to breaks within the year, for not being with my students is sad, they energize me daily. My zeal for my students is limitless!
