I run Extended Hours in G105 (formerly in the Media Center) on most Thursdays during the school year. Hours are from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. I have tutors available, or you can just come by to work. The Mothership's Mobile Makerspace is open for business at that time--come to explore, create, and play!
I engage young human beings in the classroom. This is my life's work. I had teachers who created transformational experiences, and I had teachers whose classroom cultures presented daily challenges. Both types of teachers inspired me to follow this path, and I have been on this journey for over thirty years.
Engaging students and facilitating learning is what I do.
Let me tell you a little story.
I had just finished a bachelor's degree in English Literature, with minors in Art History and Creative Writing, and when I graduated my first job was...on a construction site.
I wanted to work and save money for travel and grad school, and this opportunity presented itself. I'm a crack shot with a putty knife, I enjoyed working with wood--ash was a favorite--and DOING something active
after completing a degree that included an eight-hour comprehensive exam on everything from Beowulf to Virginia Woolf was a welcome respite.
So I did that job, then went back to school, and I've been in the classroom, and the ENERGY OF DOING THINGS is energy we all need.
All humans have a need to create.
Learning happens at all times--be open to it. I learn from my students each day.
