Third grade multiple subjects
My name is Bailey Hawke and I have been a part of the TAP for two years now. I moved from San Diego to Colorado for college and never thought I would come back, but then I heard about TAP! I student taught in 1st and 5th grade until being hired right in the middle at third grade. During my time in the program I learned what it really means to be a culturally responsive teacher and was given opportunities to better my practice. TAP allowed me to take a deep dive into specific content areas through research and lesson study. I chose to spend time looking at math curriculum and instruction due to my not-so-great experience as a math student. TAP allowed me to build connections with colleagues across the county and wonderful students at HTeNC.
