High School Social Studies Teacher
This was an amazing, and challenging career for me. I started teaching at the young age of twenty-one. During my tenure at Sandwich High School, I learned a great deal about Special Education, Honors Education, and everything in between. I taught classes such as American History, Advanced American History, Psychology, Maps and Charts, Current Events, Practical Law, Global Studies, and American Government. There was no curriculum when I entered teaching at Sandwich High School, so I had to create my own. I also was given the authority to create a curriculum map for all of the Social Studies classes at the school. I was in charge of my classroom for seven periods of the day, and then for one supervision duty. I worked with students that were freshmen through seniors. I also ran/supervised/coached many different clubs and activities. I was the Future Educators of America Sponsor, the Scholastic Bowl Moderator, National Honor Society Sponsor, Head Speech Team Coach, and helped out with various dances, including assisting in coordinating the Junior Prom. The most important part of my job, though, was to work with students, other faculty members, staff, administrators, guidance counselors, social workers, and parents all together. I tried to work in a way, so that I was always working as a team, to help each of my students succeed.
