|Before moving to Chapel Hill, North Carolina I had the opportunity to teach in both Russia and Fiji. In both locations I was able to interact with various cultures.||
||Teaching in other countries has heightened my awareness of diversity and has helped me individualize instruction for each of my students.|
This year I was able to integrate technology into many of the subjects I teach. My students and I have used technology for word-processing, spreadsheets, databases, Internet services, movie editing (teacher only), and Hyperstudio projects (including scanning and digital cameras).
My students do not have access to a computer lab at our school. Instead they are able to use the three computers that are in our classroom to access the Internet, our school media center, and shared files and to work on projects. Digital/video cameras and scanners must be checked out as needed.
One goal I have for myself as an educator is to create a holistic learning environment. A major component of this ideal classroom is technology integration. Another goal is to be technology-proficient so that I am qualified to use multimedia equipment and lesson plans efficiently in the classroom.
Our schools are overcrowded, and
the students crave individual attention. I effectively used my resources this
year to give all children the opportunity to explore new realms in their education.
Though I enjoy teaching, I look forward to my time in the evenings. I enjoy running and being outdoors. I also love trying new recipes and hope to attend a culinary arts school. My absolute favorite hobby is traveling the world and living in other places.
My favorite places to travel are locations which force me to get out of my modernly-convenienced world that I am able to live each day here in the United States.
I have been married for five years and have no children. I do have a dog, who is spoiled beyond belief.
