As a former
educator, I worked as a Substitute Teacher in a wide range of
classroom settings in the Pottstown area from 2004 to 2013. I
taught between three school districts in rooms
ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade. I have instructed in many
special subjects including Art, Gym, Computers, Health, Music, Library, and
Special Education. My bachelor's degree, background knowledge, and
experiences have been more than enough to prepare me to implement the
lesson plans left by a absent teacher.
My teaching style is generally relaxed. I like to treat students as if they
were five years older than their actual age. Overall I have found great success
treating students in this manner. While not every student is pleased to see me,
they do know that I treat them fairly, firmly, and consistently. Any student
who has had me more then once knows that I expect them to complete their
assignments to the best of their ability. They also know that I will do
everything within my power to help them understand a concept, solve a problem,
or prevent them from being bullied.
studies to become a Master of Classroom Technology, I created a page on
Wikispaces. I wanted to showcase Wikispace as a powerful tool in the
classroom as well as other technology I felt could be used in the classroom.
Most of these online tools could also be used in other settings outside of
