TEACHING STYLE

I try to incorporate as much variety as possible into my lessons. I love utilizing technology, flipped lessons, modeling, argumentation, engineering, and more. I push students to see the connections between concepts and classes, think critically, work well with groups, analyze data, and learn other important 21st-century skills.

BOOK & WORKSHOPS

I self-published "Teaching Hacks!" Read more about my book below. I also regularly present workshops; I have presented my Teaching Hacks workshop 15+ times, to various crowds, and all over the state of Wisconsin. 

 

I love synthesizing information and finding ways to creatively present it to others; if you have a workshop idea that you'd like me to present, let's talk!

Teaching Hacks! (Workshop)

The first year of teaching can be quite a challenge, and so much learning happens along the way. In this session, I share tips and tricks that have worked in my classroom (learned via trial and error!) and participants discuss what has and has not worked in their experiences so far.

 

Topics include time management, classroom management, interacting with parents, organization, and building relationships.

 

Participants will walk away with many ideas and items that can immediately be implemented into their K12 classroom.
