  • This presentation represents a collection of my teaching experiences through McDaniel College’s Master of Science in Elementary Education Program. My artifacts represent the culmination of McDaniel’s classroom learning and application of program instruction within Carroll County Public Schools, and my five years of Paraeducator and Substitute Teaching experiences within the Howard County Public School System.
  • I set the individual needs of students at the pinnacle of my lesson design and presentation of instruction. Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences guide my planning and implementation of instructional activities. Through this theory, I can differentiate for the needs of students’ individual learning styles and provide authentic, real-life experiences. My goal is to provide meaningful, sustainable learning.
  • McDaniel College has provided me with an extensive, transferable background of methods to effectively incorporate professional standards of teaching and educational psychology within the classroom setting. I observed Carroll County Public School’s management and teaching philosophies. Each observance caused me to reflect upon, and modify my teaching strategies to incorporate updated instructional practices to help my students obtain a greater level of understanding and retention..

Table of Contents l My Philosophy

my philosophy
My Philosophy
  • I believe the most critical aspects of teaching are to provide students with the knowledge and the means to become honorable, civic-minded citizens who possess the cognitive and social characteristics to be successful in their lives and society as a whole. Entrusted with our country’s youth, educators have the responsibility to be examples of society’s values for their students. I will strive to be the type of person I would like my students to become. I will be respectful and command respect; be honest and expect honesty; be open-minded and fair and expect open-mindedness and fairness; and be civically conscious and active and encourage my students to demonstrate the same. I will continuously reflect on my behavior, and question whether I project a role model which embodies these characteristics.
  • Students learn best when they are in Vgotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development. Educators need to constantly present students with challenges and goals to strive toward. I also feel a cooperative learning environment complements direct instruction methods. I will model concepts, provide guided and independent practice, reinforce my instruction with group collaboration activities and reflect upon each day’s learning success. When individuals work with peers, their interactions exemplify diversity, demonstrate that everyone is capable of learning and that every student learns in a different way. Respect for individual differences promotes cooperation and a global classroom environment. Each student benefits through multiple sources of support.
  • Instruction that places students at the center of learning encourages responsibility for effort and work product. By meeting the needs of individual students, I will provide meaningful learning, demonstrate concern and care, and provide multiple avenues for successful learning.
  • Every student has different goals to strive toward and an ultimate destination. Whether this destination is college, technology school, or work place, every student is moving toward the place they want to be. I hope my students will take advantage of the resources the school and I have to offer. My personal goal is to encourage my students to keep reaching beyond their capabilities. Once they achieve one goal, a new goal will be set in place. I never want my students to feel stagnant or bored. I believe that everyone deserves to be a life-long learner. I will challenge my students to keep moving forward and keep reaching.
  • My role as an educator is a facilitator of learning. I will provide my students with the tools they need to be successful learners and encourage them to succeed. The needs of my students motivate me to be an effective instructor and move me to offer them opportunities for learning in the Intelligence Style they learn best. Through the Gradual Release Model of instruction, I will model, provide guided and individual practice, reinforce cooperative learning strategies and review. I will formatively assess my students’ learning daily as I observe their level participation and engagement. I will question them during activities, and modify instruction to accommodate their needs. I will always reflect upon the effectiveness of my teaching and look for ways to improve my methods and skills.

The mission of Linton Springs Elementary School is to ensure students meet or exceed expectations by being active, responsible learners.

"Today's Connection To Tomorrow."

Located in Eldersburg, Maryland, a small suburb in Carroll County, Maryland, Linton Springs Elementary provides its six hundred and eighty students with excellent instruction from grades Kindergarten through Fifth. Forty-three teachers are distributed among grade levels making the teacher/student ratio 1:16. The number of students per grade ranges from a low of 102 students in third grade, to a high of 126 students in fifth grade. Fifty-two percent of the student body are boys, and forty-eight percent are girls.

Site Description Continued

My student teaching experience has been in second grade. There are five classrooms of approximately twenty- one to twenty-three students per room. I am fortunate to instruct one classroom of twenty-one students. The percentage of boys to girls within this classroom is nearly fifty percent boys to fifty percent girls. There are three instructional levels for each content area. The challenge has been rotating between these instructional levels to provide equitable instruction to all. Student interests vary from sports to gaming technology to dance. These interests provide me with a wide range of authentic experiences to use during instruction in order to build student background knowledge, and help them connect to my teaching points.

The surrounding neighborhood of Eldersburg, Maryland consists of single family homes on lots of approximately one to two acres. Rolling hills and open backyard areas create aesthetic appeal, and functional fields for aspiring young soccer and football superstars to practice on. In close proximity to the school are amenities such as the Carroll County library, churches and shopping. Local businesses support Linton Springs’ Parent Teacher Association, and student activities through their pledges and donations. Within this close knit community, parents, local citizens and teachers collaborate to encourage the academic success of students.
