Winner - Jan. 2018: Teachers Are Heroes

Philosophy of Education
Learning takes on many forms and I believe that each day we can discover something new. We all come from different backgrounds, with our own unique experiences. Every person holds beliefs and has value, especially in the classroom. If we can share what we know with those around us, I think we all become more educated. I am constantly making lessons that can be applicable to all facets of life and asking my students what they want to learn so they are driving their education. I want them to be as involved and excited about their learning as possible. Education is so important!
I am a 7th grade, middle school, Geography teacher in the Bethlehem Area School District. In 2011, I graduated from Penn State University. I started my teaching career at Freedom HS teaching 9th grade US History and Sociology as a long-term substitute. The following year, I continued working as a LTS, teaching AP Psychology and 11th grade Global Studies. From there, I taught Modern US History at Stroudsburg HS, filling in for another teacher. Then I returned to Bethlehem to teach 7th grade geography as a LTS, and continued as the building substitute where I helped coach volleyball and soccer. This year, I finally earned my own classroom. I met so many amazing people along my journey, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. It has helped shaped who I am as a person and as a teacher, and for that, I am truly grateful.
