I've taught high school English for 12 years in New York City, teaching everything from special education to AP English. I currently serve as my school's instructional lead teacher. I have also taught journalism for the past nine years, publishing the school's newspaper and yearbook.
I believe in making education fun and interesting for students -- and myself. I'm naturally a crafty person, so I love finding ways to make the students use their creativity in relation to the content and the standards.

In my spare time, when I'm not preparing lessons and activities for my students, I am a cookie baker. Check out my creations: craftycookies.com
