I am currently an Undergraduate student in Oregon, working to become a high school English teacher. This is a basic portfolio that I plan to grow on and continue to build as my schooling continues.
This website is a collection of the things I have learned and currently learning to become the best educator that I can be for future students. Due to the growing nature of education, this will always be a work in progress as I continue to grow myself.
I am always looking to learn from my mistakes, so if there is an error you feel needs attention please let me know. I always try my best, but sometimes human error comes through.
I am currently in the process of filming a video of myself helping a 5th grader learn new words and how to use them with the classic board game Scrabble. This is something I am excited for because I am particularly close with the child, and I look forward to not only see the results of this activity, but to receive fed back from them. [That is something often overlooked and under rated, evaluations from your own students.]
The link to view the lesson plan is here, and the final project this video will be a part of will be posted here.
Today we just have met our other partner(s) for our final presentation as well. We all seem to have different paths we want to take in education, but we all liked Chapter 9 of our text.
I am hopeful for what this project will being eye opening for how to integrate technology into English education. I don’t see much more being used in high school other than a computer to research and typing, and any kind of activity that can be on an interactive projector, but I hope to change this.
