Ms. Markham? Or Ms. Frizzle? TV Character Day 2015
I am Michigan raised and couldn't imagine a better place to live! I graduated from Andrews University in 2015 with Social Studies, Secondary Education. This is my second year at Bridgman and it is an honor to teach in such an awesome community!
I completed my student teaching at St. Joseph High School where I taught World History, US History, and AP Comparative Government. The following year I took a long term subbing position there teaching World History and Practical Law. I also had the opportunity to be one of the sponsors for Model UN. Previously at Bridgman, I taught 8th grade U.S. History and Math Intervention at the high school. I am also the head girl's track coach at the high school and one of the 9th grade sponsors.
In the classroom I have three elements I incorporate for an effective learning environment: enhancement of creativity in the lesson, encouragement of higher order thinking, and inspiring selfworth within each student. These elements are meant to foster a positive, comfortable learning environment for the students.
