No institutional looking items here!

Meet Michelle Waters, 9-11th grade English Teacher

Mrs. Waters

What’s your first and last name?

  • Michelle Waters

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • 9-11th grade English Teacher

How are you involved in education?

  • I have now taught high school English for a year and a half and middle school English for three years. In my previous careers, I served as an award-winning newspaper reporter and a web design and hosting company owner. I draw upon those experiences to help me connect what students are learning in the classroom with the real world.

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • In my idea classroom, students are reading both traditional and contemporary text of their choosing either on paper or on tech devices. Students not only learn the skills and processes described in whatever standards we’re covering, but also real-life wisdom such as the importance of revision, meeting deadlines, organization, curiosity, and never giving up.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?

  • I would love to facilitate sessions on standards-based grading, integrating contemporary texts into the high school English class, organizing student-led instruction, and embedding grammar and vocabulary instruction into high-interest reading and writing activities.
