Units of Study: Teaching Artifacts

Assessments and Active Participation Strategies

My pedagogy includes a variety of formative and summative assessment techniques, and active participation techniques, as tools to help me engage each student and measure successes and areas of need.

Visuals

I carefully craft my visual aids for instruction, providing an opportunity for multimodal learning, and giving me another opportunity to integrate my own artistic practice into my instruction.

Teaching Diverse Learners

I have had the good fortune of working with students of myriad learning skills and needs.  Effective communication and trust create infinite opportunities for success.
