Hello, I am Dr. Sid Vineburg. I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in New York, a Master’s in Education (Differentiated Instruction of At-Risk Learners) from Marian University in Wisconsin and a Doctor of Education in Leadership and Management (With Distinction) from Capella University in Minnesota.
I taught Middle School Social Studies, English and health for 5 years and was an At-Risk Coordinator for 1 year under my Wisconsin Teaching license. I have also taught American History online to students in China.
Currently, I am an online adjunct professor at Grand Canyon University in the College of Education, teaching graduate courses in the Teacher Education program. I am also one of two Clinical Practice Mentors in the College of Education working to integrate the edTPA (Pearson) assessment into the Student Teaching course. I have taught a variety of courses in the Program, including the Student Teaching course. I am also a Faculty Supervisor (Student Teacher Supervisor) for Grand Canyon University and for Western Governors University.
I am engaging and thoughtful, and very good about providing holistic comments, advice and feedback to my students. I use my courses to encourage critical thinking and reflection. I also require differentiation and active learning plans from my students, using the current best practices to guide and mentor my pre-service teachers. I use educational technologies such as Zoom to supplement the course work with group or one on one instruction.
