Teaching Positions

Wildwood School - Coding Teacher

I teach middle school coding classes with Python, Scratch, and HTML/CSS. Each class has 20+ students. In addition to building websites and games, my students also learn about computing history and the internet, and they discuss technology news. As the Coding Club advisor, I provide students with resources to learn languages that interest them, such as C++ and C#, and answer their programming questions. I am currently collaborating with the Tech Department to plan Hour of Code and developing upper school activities with JavaScript (p5.js).

Episcopal School of Jacksonville - Latin Teacher

From 2014 to 2016, I taught Latin I, IB, II, III, and IV to 8th-12th grade students. Each class had 10-15 students. I used games and activities to reinforce learning Latin grammar and vocabulary and collaborated with the other Latin teacher to develop a Roman culture curriculum. I ensured student success on assessments with "practice tests" and did projects on Greek mythology and Roman history, as well as a unit on the film Gladiator. As the JCL (Latin Club) advisor, I provided activities for meetings while encouraging students to take on club responsibilities. In summer 2016, I created academic materials for the school Ancient Italy trip and served as a chaperone.

Chandler Preparatory Academy - Latin Teacher

In the 2013-2014 school year, I taught three sections of 6th grade Latin and one section of 9th grade Latin III Honors at one of the Great Hearts charter schools. Each class had 20-24 students. Through mentorship, I developed classroom management skills and Latin-based games to engage middle school students. I developed a literature-based curriculum for the second semester of Latin III, selecting Horace and Catullus poems to read by theme. I used group work to maximize student participation and made activities such as "Grammar Treasure Hunts" to reinforce the material.
