I draw upon knowledge of content areas, cross-disciplinary skills, learners, the community and pedagogy to plan instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals.
I understand and use a variety of instructional strategies to encourage learners to develop deep understanding of content areas and their connections, and to build skills and appropriately apply information.
Literature Circle Roles
Readers' Theater
iPad apps like Socrative
Post-it note annotation
Elements of "Flipped Classroom"
I collaborate with students, families, colleagues and other professionals, and community members to share responsibility for student growth and development, learning and well-being.
I've done numerous home visits. This is the Delgado family; I taught their daughter, Maria, and we got to know each other through home visits, with the help of an interpreter.
Three other colleagues and I planned a cross-campus Arts Week with over a thousand students, staff members and parents/guardians in attendance.
I've arranged many field trips, one of them being this Broadcast Journalism class visit to WCCO.
I have been a part of weekly Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) for years. I am a huge proponent of collaboration!
I understand and use multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to document learner progress, and to inform my ongoing planning and instruction.

A brief formative assessment
Charting assessment data
I understand how to connect concepts and use differing perspectives to engage learners in critical/creative thinking and collaborative problem-solving related to authentic local and global issues.
A log of some of my professional development
can be found here:
I am a reflective practitioner who uses evidence to continually evaluate my practice, particularly the effects of my choices and actions on others (students, families, and other professionals in the learning community), and adapts practice to meet the needs of each learner.
I work with learners to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning, encouraging positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.

Purposeful desk arrangements
Student work examples

Social contracts for high expectations
I use understanding of individual differences and diverse communities to ensure inclusive learning environments that allow each learner to reach his/her full potential.

Electronic publication of student-directed work: IGCSE Drama coursework

Multicultural texts, essential unit questions, and even wall decor define learning
Multiple intelligence activities to explore learning styles in tutor group
Revision that allows students to reflect on their own learning
Meeting notes about pacing and increasing student cognitive time despite varied learning needs:
I understand the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the disciplines I teach and create learning experiences that make these aspects of the discipline accessible and meaningful for learners.
