I am a 8th grade U.S. History/Health Teacher at Homer Middle School. This is my 18th year teaching. I taught for 13 years in Noorvik, AK and this is my 5th year in Homer. I enjoy teaching only one grade, but miss watching the kids grow and mature over the years like I experienced in Noorvik, teaching 7-12 Social Studies. I am married and have a 2 year old daughter that I love spending time with.
PL Strategy to share:
I have been focusing on student reflection on their assignments and also working on giving more student choice for completing the assignments. I am really excited to learn more about different strategies.
Current Driving Question:
I would really like to find more ways to motivate all of my students and have them take ownership in their work.
