I teach teach middle school Reading and Writing in the Houston area. I am certified in ELA (grades 4-8 and 8-12), Social Studies (grades 4-8), and ESL (grades 4-8).
My personal quote wouldn't fit in the space provided but I think it describes me and my teaching style pretty well: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of childrenâ€¦ to leave the world a better placeâ€¦ to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. -RW Emerson
