I taught English for eight years in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Educational Technology at Arizona State University. I have a 7-12 certification, and I have experience at every grade level within that spectrum.
Creativity is at the heart of my teaching philosophy, but I also believe in balance and structure. My expertise in the classroom is helping students connect to literature, writing, and each other. Community is vital within education, and I want students to feel like they have a place and a purpose when they step into my room. I value the arts, and if there is an opportunity to incorporate music, dance, theater, etc. into my lessons, I make it happen.

I earned my B.A. in Secondary Education from ASU, and I will be finishing up my M.A. in Educational Technology this Spring.
I am working on developing E-Learning Modules for the classroom, specifically ones that allow students to think and write creatively. I like to write about teaching here: www.beeamonghail.com
