My teaching is grounded in the quote "A child is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited". I blend constructivist, liberationist, and 21st-century learning frameworks with the goal of inspiring a love of learning.

Megan Bennett Personal Pedagogy





Working as an instructional coach at an online high school has allowed me to combine my passion for critical and constructivist pedagogy with technological pedagogy like 21st-Century learning design. This has culminated in a teaching style that prioritizes student agency, future-forward thinking, and authentic learning.


21st Century Learning at GOAL High School

Here I deepened the pedagogical knowledge I gained in my undergraduate studies. I was especially impacted by research on special-needs students who are also learning academic English. Critical pedagogy was a focus in this time of my career.


CLD Master's Coursework at CSU

Supporting diverse students in my gen-ed English courses taught me that a safe and FUN learning environment is crucial for student success. Watching some of my students be the first in their families to cross a graduation stage filled me with inspiration and a drive to help students break barriers.


Teaching Language Learners at Eagle Ridge Academy

As a college student, I supported an LSU-student run summer camp that provided college and arts experiences for high-achieving high-schoolers from underserved schools. This was the basis for my decision to become a teacher.

Strategies I Champion

+ Why?

+ why?

+ why?

The first step to student success is mindset! Warm demanding builds student confidence in themselves through consistently demonstrating to them that they are a valued and equal member of their learning community.

Applying Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocols allows all students the opportunity and support to develop academic English. Students receive appropriate learning materials for their language level without reducing expectations for their success

Giving students unlimited opportunities to revise their work puts the agency in their hands. Not only does this enhance the academic dialogue between teacher and student, it highlights areas of confusion that may need re-teaching.
