I am a tech savvy teacher who believes in engaging students with multiple styles of learning. I have experience in flipped classroom methodology and initiated a flipped curriculum in my building. I strongly believe in differentiated Instruction incorporating writing, videos and other visual cues to help the mental organization and recall of information. It is important to build a rapport with each student to ensure a comfortable learning environment. I have experience with all ages and in both public and private settings. I have taught in block and standard scheduling type of classrooms. Having a detailed lesson plan with activities and prompts are something that is critical for my preparation for my students.
