I am currently in my 6th year at Fields Store Elementary in Waller, Texas. For the past four years I have taught 5th grade math and I have loved every minute of it! I am a big fan of finding new and innovative ways to bring technology into the classroom and have started Flipping my math classroom this year!!

Salutations! I have enjoyed teaching in Montgomery County Public Schools for nine years as a high school English teacher. My favorite subjects include Creative Writing, AP Language and Literature and TV Production. I have also taught 10th, 11th and 12th grade curricula on both regular and honors levels. While teaching, I also sponsored the school's literary magazine for several years. I hold a B.S. in English and Education as well as a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have been teaching for 11 years now at Neil Armstrong Middle School in Forest Grove, OR. I received my undergraduate from Oregon State University, and my MAT from Pacific University. I teach English language arts, two sections of each regular and honors. I am in my third year of flipping my language arts classes and second year of going 1:1 with ipads. Our school has also been progressive in switching all of our proficiencies (we run a proficiency/mastery model) from our state standards to CCSS, Our middle school has also instituted STEM across the curriculum! Flipping has been my answer to save the bulk of my English curriculum while still fitting in the STEM approach. I am also one of two tech coaches in our building and I am very excited to see the transformation of the staff here at our school as well as our students as we utilize technology and pedagogy to engage and instruct our students. I recently wrote a chapter in the much anticipated followup to Bergman and Sams book on flipping called Flipping 2.0. Obviously, I utilize a lot of digital media for my students, feel free to check out my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8Cp5Xjn7ic-3BjtrBS0QVg/videos?view=0&flow=grid Connect via edmodo, Schoology, and twitter (@MrsCarterHLA), as well as here on Sophia. I have both a blog of reflection on my classroom instruction and a couple of websites to organize all videos and handouts for my students: *HLA: https://sites.google.com/a/fgsd.k12.or.us/mrs-carter-s-hla/ *ELA: https://sites.google.com/a/fgsd.k12.or.us/mrscarterela/ *Tech Support: https://sites.google.com/a/fgsd.k12.or.us/nams-teacher-tech-support/ *Flipping 2.0 tinyurl.com/flipping20 I have one five year old daughter named Molly, a loving husband, and Wheaton terrier named Winston. My husband owns his own printing and art gallery in the Pearl in downtown Portland, so to say we aren't a super busy family is somewhat of an understatement! Wouldn't change it for the world though, life is good!
