Teaching

About My Teaching

Prior to becoming a teacher educator and professional developer, I worked in the K-12 setting in multiple contexts: classroom teacher, writing center coordinator, academic tutor, and after-school mentor.  As a teacher-educator, my pedagogical choices combine theory and practice because successful teachers have a solid understanding of why they should use particular strategies. Additionally, I model the pedagogical techniques that I want my students to implement in their classrooms. This means that I keep lecturing to a minimum and explicitly engage them in the research-based practices that we discuss. An important aspect of my instructional practice includes utilizing technology, such as classroom video footage and on-line resources.
