Biography

 

My name is Pat Hutton and I have been given a wonderful opportunity to work with your class. My undergraduate work was in elementary education with a strong emphasis on the development of literacy, both the reading and writing strands. I continued my work in graduate school in special education.  Since graduation I have earned more than 60 additional graduate credits, exploring cooperative learning, balanced literary, Grant Wiggins’ Understanding by Design, and many applications of technology in the classroom. Recently I earned a certificate in online instruction from UW-Stout. I have also authored a webquest that was selected to be linked to Blue Web’n.  I am a member of CEC and NJEA.

 

I’ve taught in a middle school for the last 29 years.  I provided English instruction, particularly the development of students’ writing skills, in both resource room and regular education settings. I worked as part of a collaborative learning community to enhance my instructional practice. We focused our efforts on writing instruction. I learned a great deal from my colleagues and I look forward to our interaction.
