I am a Special Education teacher with experience in the self-contained and integrated team teaching settings. My strength is in small-group and targeted instruction. I utilize explicit models of teaching to engage students and deliver instruction.  I believe students learn best through doing. An effective curriculum is centered on the experiential. Cross-curricular projects and activities should be commonplace in the classroom with an equal focus on process and outcome. This year, I will lead students in their first experience using computer programming to solve real-world problems--part of Computer Science For All.

I am a licensed mental health provider from Interborough Developmental and Consultation Center, providing support services to students and families at Ebbets Field.  My approach is getting to know each student, and understanding their preferred means of relating and self-expression.  I acknowledge that students face challenges that are not just personal but also systemic.  I believe that every student is ready to learn and grow, and that everyone benefits from being recognized as a unique individual within a supportive community.   My goal for this year is to meet with students individually and in groups to aid in adjusting to these uncertain times while they grow and develop as young people.

My name is Odette John-Dover. I am a Special Education Teacher with experience in the 12:1:1 (self-contained)setting. I believe that all students can learn and that students learn best through inquiry and hands on experiences. I believe that the classroom must be a conducive, safe space in which respect for all and tolerance are fostered. This year, I will be working in the NEST classroom as the math and ELA teacher (Grade Six).





I am an ENL teacher with 10 years of experience in Middle School. My strength is effectively delivering integrated and stand-alone services for ENL students. I work closely alongside the English Language Arts teachers to add scaffolds to support ENL students. I also pull students in small groups; these sessions focus on remedying and building specific language acquisition skills. I believe ENL students learn best through social immersion and discussion in a culturally responsive environment. This school year, I will continue to use Advance Literacy and Socratic practices to frame instruction.  I plan to advocate for wider use of the Imagine Learning program in tandem with I-Ready for emerging ENL students.

I am a Social Studies teacher for grades 6-8 students. Our focus is on the Eastern Hemisphere for Grade 6 and the United States for the 7th and 8th grades. My philosophy stems from a firm belief that it takes a village to raise a child. In essence this means that if all parties involved in the education of a child are fully committed, every child can learn successfully. This year I will be instructing my students in a blended format-virtually and in person.
I teach Core Music and Band. I love helping students find connections between their interests and music as we investigate music from around the world and through many subject lenses.  From songwriting, to instrument technique, to event production or the science of sound, I use student's varied interests to develop our yearly curriculum and to make sure every student finds their musical niche. This year we will delve into digital music making, songwriting and audio editing as we explore our new digital world. 
I am a school counselor at the Ebbets Field Middle School 352.  I have been assigned to the middle school since 2006. I've worked with all grades, presently the focus is grades 6-8. My strength is social emotional learning. You can not be an effective educator without knowledge of your audience. Philosophy: Kids are like little social butterflies. It is our job to reach; to teach to the heart. Listening is very much apart of such development. Goal: To use curriculum and strategies on 2020's platforms with the endeavor of supporting students in reaching their fullest potential.

I am a Special Education teacher with a specialization in English Language Arts. I have experience working with students with disabilities and general education students. My strength is scaffolding for student-led instruction and small heterogeneous grouping. By doing so, I employ the "I do, we do, they do" model through activities that inspire discussion and stimulate critical thinking/learning. I strongly believe the best tool for student learning is collaboration and differentiated instruction.

Currently, I am a 7th and 8th grade Math Teacher at Ebbets Field Middle School. My aim is to equip students with the tools to become problem-solvers and independent learners. Math is often seen as a challenging subject but I believe all students are capable of being successful with Math.

As such, I have challenged myself to establish a culturally responsive classroom environment for ALL of my students.

I am a Physical Education and Health teacher here at Ebbets Field Middle School. I have experience in educating students in the sports education model in which students gain knowledge in playing, officiating, spectating, appreciation and statistics of sports. My philosophy of teaching is to educate students in a wide variety of skills that pertain to Physical Education. In doing so, the goal of my Physical Education program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills in order to improve their overall health. Thus, leading into my philosophy in Health education being, providing students with culturally relevant Health education in order to improve their overall health. Being able to integrate both of the subjects I teach, provides me with a greater opportunity to make a difference in my students' overall health beyond their time as a student here at Ebbets Field Middle School.
