Sarah's Story

8/29/16

I am thrilled to be working with your student in their English classes and am looking forward to a fun and exciting year.

 

My passion for education and learning in a creative and engaging environment has been an extensive journey. I’m a native Southern Californian, having grown up in Vista and graduated from Vista High School. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Drama from San Francisco State University with a minor in Speech Communication in 2005. After teaching musical theater all over San Diego county for several years, I decided to pursue teaching as a career. I am proud to have earned my dual teaching credential in both English and History/Social Science from CSU San Marcos in 2016.

 

In addition to being a teacher, I am also a Mom, which is my absolute favorite job! I love devoting my time away from school to my 3 beautiful children. Together we spend a great deal of time enjoying the wonderful outdoors that we are lucky to have at our doorstep here in San Diego. When I can, I get out and experience local theater, as I am an avid supporter of the arts.

 

My classroom will be a place of meaningful learning where your child can truly “dare to be great” in the Bobcat way. Together, we will explore the expansive and exciting content of the English curriculum in creative, engaging ways that are relevant to our students. The success of each and every one of my students is at the heart of who I am as a teacher.

 

As an English teacher, I see so much opportunity for my course content to be a key that unlocks a world of possibility for my students.  Reading is the foundation for learning across the content areas and the gift that gives students of any age the ability to grow and explore.  Writing is the greatest gift born of reading, and together they are the foundation not only for the extensive subject of English, but for the educational experience as a whole.  With this foundation in mind, I aim to inspire a love for learning in my students by:

  • Creating a classroom community where my students feel safe to explore and collaborate.

    • Modeling respect, greeting students at the door, getting to know my students through survey and conversation, developing an environment of trust through team building activities, modeling positive encouragement, providing positive student interaction through peer review activities

  • Developing interesting, engaging lessons and activities in class that challenge students to think critically and attach meaning and purpose to their learning.

    • Plan using the Understanding by Design model, display student learning objectives every lesson, review the “Why?” with students, use materials that are relevant to students, design lessons that build on students’ prior knowledge and access their personal experiences, allow students to create meaning through text-to-text, text-to-self and text-to-world connections

  • Encouraging students to ask questions of themselves, each other, and the content of our lessons.

    • Project-based learning, small group and whole class discussions, Socratic seminars & fishbowl activities

  • Embracing opportunities to open our minds, celebrating our differences and how they can bring us together.

    • Learning through the lens of different perspectives, integrating literature and expository materials to deepen and broaden understanding, fostering an environment that teaches and models tolerance, integrating issues of social justice & equity

  • Teaching students how to value themselves and their learning journey.  

    • Positive feedback, self-assessment, student goals, recognizing & celebrating progress, student choice

Together with my students, we will build our love for learning in a positive, enriching environment.

 

I invite you to visit my website to learn more about me, my teaching style, and my philosophies of teaching. I can’t wait to share in a great year of learning with your child!

 

All the Best,

 

Sarah Hunter
