For me, teaching is a calling. From my earliest childhood memories, I remember loving to play “school.” This love of the entire process of learning has followed me throughout the changes in my career path. In any role, regardless of whether I am acting in the formal roles of “instructor” or “student,” I seek to learn and to teach.
Develop and implement units and lessons based on standards, materials available, student interest, and cross-curricular subjects.
- Create lessons that are founded in the Common Core State Standards, and challenge students to apply basic concepts to real-world contexts.
- Promote literacy, critical-thinking, problem solving, collaboration and applications to everyday life for all students.
Apply varied assessment methods to measure the knowledge gained by students and to improve student learning.
- Summative Assessment including use of pre and post tests to show growth and mastery of a concept.
- Formative Assessment to assess the need for adjustment in instruction to increase student learning.
Example: When results of an exit slip showed students did not grasp the desired concept, instructional plans were adjusted. Using a different approach allowed students to learn the material, ensuring the method of instruction wasn’t what made the topic difficult.
- Informal Assessment – ongoing monitoring to evaluate student comprehension and modifying lesson plans as needed.
Example: When a quick check on a whiteboard revealed students didn’t understand the lesson’s objective, instead of moving on I adjusted and revisited the topic through another method.
- Student Formative Self-Assessment to allow students to reflect on their own understanding of the lesson’s learning goal. (Master’s Action-Based Research Project).
Example: Allowed students to think and write about their understanding of a math lesson, explain their strategies and reasoning to solve problems and their communication of a solution.
- Standardized or Norm Tests, such as MAP testing or STAR testing, that use data to determine what needs to be a focus for instructional material.
Example: Reviewed STAR math and reading scores to see areas of weakness and strength in these subjects, as well as to determine how to group students based on ability, and to adjust groups as student understanding changes. After administering STAR test multiple times throughout the year, data showed average student growth increased by a grade level.
Example: During my student teaching experience, I focused on developing students’ geometry skills, an area of weakness on the MAP test. At the end of this experience and after teaching a geometry unit, all students’ scores showed growth. Particularly high scores in geometry demonstrated an improvement in their geometry understanding and mastery of this concept.
Total 15 credits in each semester I teach to my students. Courses may vary depending on the level of students and the number of faculties. Usually I prefer to teach Management and HRM related subject. Apart from that I have huge interest on CSR and Organizational Behavior.
