Seattle, Washington, United States
I am a middle school humanities teacher, who focuses on designing lessons that are both dynamic and molded to the needs of the classroom. My students are taught to craft well-organized essays, analyze the literary elements of a work of fiction, evaluate the relevancy and accuracy of a text, and read with a sophisticated, critical eye. In doing so, I have continued to work on implementing technology that maximizes student interest and incorporates 21st century skills.
Over the course of my career, I have accepted departmental and committee chairmanships, guided school improvement plans that worked to exceed school-wide student achievement goals in reading, and organized numerous school-wide reading initiatives. I commonly aligned curriculum and assessments across grade levels and content areas.
I am currently studying Digital Education Leadership at Seattle Pacific University as a critical next step. I seek to expose myself to cutting-edge scholarship in this field and prepare myself academically for the challenge of implementing digital learning in the global age.
