I currently serve as the 7th Grade American History teacher as well as an 8th grade Louisiana History teacher. I utilize the Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum, the Jefferson Parish online resources for American History, and the Recovery School District's managed curriculum to effectively plan instruction. I also participated in the TAP process for teacher evaluation and effective instructional strategies. I analyzed LEAP, iLeap, and benchmark test scores as well as classroom scores. Before teaching middle school Social Studies, I taught high school English literature, and I have been able to use my skills from the previous work experience as well as my experience as a computer science teacher to present information to my students using various forms of technology such as PowerPoint or United Streaming. As the 7th and 8th grades Social Studies teacher, I currently teach reading and analyzing historical events using map skills, literature and writing. I have experience using Thinking Maps, Kagan strategies, and Scantron Assessment within my classroom.
