Earlier this year I moved to Oklahoma when my husband transferred with his job. Prior to that, I taught for eight years in Texas. During that time I taught 10th grade English, 12th grade English, 9th grade English, SAT Prep, and remedial courses. Over the past four years, I have taught Pre-AP English 2, AP English Language & Composition, and English 3 Dual Credit.
I believe that flexibility in style is the most important quality to have as a teacher. I thoroughly enjoy cooperative learning activities so I use those when I can. But I also know that cooperative learning is not always appropriate so I vary those activities with outside reading, whole class discussion, and independent activities.
Yet to be added
18+ graduate credit hours in English from UT Permian Basin M.A. Mass Communications from Texas Tech University B.A. English from UT Permian Basin
I'm a new mom who is blessed to be able to stay home with my daughter. After moving to Oklahoma and the birth of our first baby, I am taking a short break but I still have the love of teaching and desire to share that love with others. Check out my blog: http://thisteachersnewgig.blogspot.com/
