About Me

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Children’s innate curiosity makes them natural observers of their world. It is the obligation of the instructor to nurture this curiosity and develop in a child the skills essential to satisfying it. Such a task, I believe, involves cultivating techniques of investigation and critical thinking, with the ultimate goal the capacity for exploratory dialogue.

As the student ages into an adolescent and eventually adulthood, the instructor must facilitate the student’s ability to contribute not only to academic pursuits but also society as a whole. This path of education allows for ample indulgence of the student’s curiosity while still focusing on acquired information’s practical application in life.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in History from the University of North Florida in April 2013 at age 18. I specialized in children’s literature, adolescent literature, Southern literature, American literature, and creative writing. I have earned 30 out of a necessary 33 course credits in the Master of Arts in English program at Morehead State University, which I expect to officially graduate from in November 2014.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a private tutor at the elementary to undergraduate levels in English and social studies. I am currently employed as a dance and tumble instructor and have taught children and adolescents from the ages of five to nineteen. I have also volunteered as a Pop Warner assistant coach for several years. Between these three positions, I have had the pleasure of working and connecting with children and adolescents for an extensive length of time.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

In addition to instructing in dance, I have continued to study the art. I also have an avid interest in music, playing guitar and piano as well as composing. Interactive media, graphic design, and the visual arts similarly hold a strong appeal for me.
