I taught at the middle school level, both 7th and 8th grade, for several years. I then transitioned into high school, where I am currently teaching a low-level english class, labeled a 9-10 block class, and Senior English. In the 9-10 block class I teach low-leveled students two years of English in 1 year. It covers 9th grade English and 10th grade English.
I mostly use the direct instruction/ gradual release model- I do, you do, we do. This helps achieve maximum understanding, especially with my low-level learners. I have finished my training in blended learning and start to adapt station rotations into my classroom, love them! Great way to accomplish several task in one day.
Graduated from ASU with honors. Trained in close reading strategies. Wrote curriculum for both middle school and high school.

I am a working mother. I have a 6 year old son, and was blessed with another baby on the way. I find my passion for teaching through my engagement with my students. I try to make everything I do with them relevant to their generation.
