I will give the most signatures in the yearbook, I will greet the most students and faculty, and I will also be recalled on the most in every student’s future lives as they recall information learned through unique activities in my classroom.

I am the teacher who will have the biggest impact on students. I will give the most signatures in the yearbook, I will greet the most students and faculty, and I will also be recalled on the most in every student’s future lives as they recall information learned through unique activities in my classroom. Before graduating from Penn State this year, I finished my student teaching practicum. As a student teacher, I used differentiated instruction to create unique, customized activities to help all of my students reach their full potential. I generated student centered activities with options for students that were equally challenging. I provided many opportunities for group work coupled with teacher guidance. I used alternative forms of assessments such as rubrics, projects, quizzes, and worksheets. Throughout my student teaching I attended weekly team meetings where I offered advice and suggestions with student problems. In addition to graduating from Penn State this year, I also had the opportunity to substitute teach for two months. It truly reinforced my love of teaching and the family environment a school provides. Substituting taught me to be a team player and fulfill roles wherever needed.

One major characteristic of my teaching style is creating a mutual respect in the classroom while maintaining effective classroom management. Accompanied by a clear set of classroom rules and procedures, the classroom will be a productive learning environment where students are actively engaged in conversation with classmates and the instructor. The most effective lessons I delivered were when I barely talked. Through a well-planned activity and instructor guidance, students will learn from one another. I am also a firm believer in doing what it takes to make a memorable impression. This often required bringing in props or dressing up.

I took General Math and General English courses at Penn State and am a former CCD teacher.

I had a Social Studies major, History minor and Geography minor.

I was a Collegiate Golfer at Penn State Hazleton, and competitive Golf Club team member at University Park.

My objective is to obtaining a tutoring position that utilizes my passion for teaching to create a positive experience for the students by implementing various teaching methods and coordinating with other teachers to work interdisciplinary units.
