TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an instructional coach. 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 7 years I have taught 8th-grade science, each year my students have outscored 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 mini-laptops 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 7 years in 8th-grade science for my student's growth and achievements on benchmarks and state testing!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my masters in leadership and am a certified principal. 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 use 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! As an instructional coach, I thrive being able to help teachers become better at their craft. Assisting them with the use of best practices and learning to use materials easier and quicker.
