About Teri

As a teacher, I prefer to be a guide; sharing what I know with others. It is always my goal to send students off with more than they arrived with, to prepare them for what they will do in their future, both personally and professionally. In my class they learn how to interact with others, both verbally and with the written word, so that they can ask questions and require proof of facts so they do not take anything for granted and are less likely to be taken advantage of.

I always assess why the student is in the class; what their personal goals are, and tailor, as well as I can within the assigned curriculum, the class work to their expressed needs. A variety of assignments requires them to speak in front of groups, sharing their life experience, doing research, and presenting results and explanations.

Living is about interaction with others so communicating with others is one of the most important things we do in class. We all know students that may test well may not have the skills to communicate so group work and class interaction is highly valued. I have students arrange desks in a circle so they can see each other when they speak. Learning what others look like, looking for physical clues/body language as people speak and not always speaking to the teacher gets them thinking and interacting with others in a positive way.

I have worked with students of many different language backgrounds. Amazingly, the most difficult word for them to pronounce is the one that relates us all: world. It surprised me that this one word that brings us all together is the most difficult for them. It also sets the tone of my classes. My classes are inclusive; everyone gets the chance to participate and share. We learn from, and with, each other every day. From sharing our personal history, to realizing we represent our country/language/culture/religion by what we say and do, everyone learns. I believe when we finish our eyes are opened and we see a bigger world than when we started, all of us.
