    Teacher Profile

     
     
    I begin each period with asking the class how their day is going. This gives me the opportunity to assess how everyone is doing that day prior to the start of class. In addition, I make it a point to stay involved in the performance of my students in athletics and performing arts.Celebratory Best Practice
     
    Instructional Best Practice
    During class I make it a point to connect the lesson as best as possible to the students’ lives. The subject matter of Social studies is complex and often controversial. Therefore, my class runs on the universal social contract that everyone’s opinion matters, and we must all be respectful of each other. I do this by first asking a question to the class and then allowing students to share their thoughts. Maintaining a fluid dialogue is essential not only for myself to assess to their understanding of the subject matter; but also, to ensure that they are gaining the necessary tools to assist them on their journey to becoming productive members of society.
