I taught in NY state for five years in grades 7,8,10, and 11 and then in GA for five years in 7th and 8th. I taught social studies and special education and was a co-teacher for ELL and science. I started the website www.hollerformastro.com which helps teachers differentiate their work sessions using multiple intelligences and leveled writing in less than 10 minutes and each activity includes a rubric. We are currently expanding to include social studies differentiated instruction lesson plans and differentiated powerpoints. I also created interactive expository writing engines on that site.
