I attended Saint Vincent College in Latrobe PA for my undergrad in Elementary Instruction. I received my certification from the Pennsylvania State Education Department in June of 2010 in K-6 instruction. While spending time at Saint Vincent I started to develop a love for lesson planning and lesson designing. After I graduated I decided to continue my education by receiving my MS in Curriculum and Instruction through Saint Vincent.
I have moved to Salt Lake City from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. While living in Pittsburgh I attended Saint Vincent College and Seminary for my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Instruction, as well as, my Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instruction. My education through Saint Vincent College has prepared me to be an outstanding teacher. I spent a year student teaching in first and fourth grade. I also attended several workshops and seminars by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. While working on my Masters I worked as a Group Supervisor of a Keystone STARS level 2 school. Here is where I gained the experience of working with younger children in the preschool setting. I also learned how to manage staff, plan successful curriculum, and assess developmentally appropriate standards. The following year I worked as a Lead Teacher in a Keystone STARS level 4 preschool. Here is where I gained experience in teaching children ages 3-5. I also learned how to effectively communicate with parents, plan differentiated instruction for multiple types of intelligences, and how to design a classroom using a preschool environmental rating scale.
Style of Teaching:
My teaching style varies throughout my instruction. I am a strong believer of doing is learning through the methodologies of John Dewey. I also believe interest yields intellect, all of my products are designed to gain the interests of each and every student to gain the most educational experiences for all!
