Master of Arts in Teaching
- Developing a Deep Understanding: Students benefit most from the study of history when they can place themselves "in the shoes" of its actors. I encourage my students to develop personal connections to the material as a teaching tool through the use of simulations and analysis of primary source materials.
- Differentiating Instruction to Challenge All Learners: I set high expectations in my classroom, with clear routes of support to promote all of my learners achieving highly.
- Professional Collaboration: I appreciate working with other educators to generate pools of ideas from which we may build upon the best.
- Continuous Improvement Practices: I strive to develop my craft as an educator, and will always seek to refine and improve that craft.
