TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 15 years of classroom experience teaching ELA in grades 6-9 in a variety of settings (inclusion, G/T, Pre-AP, and level). I am currently teaching 9th grade English at a public high school in Texas.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a great passion for writing and literature. My students write something every day. For me, it is a vital aspect of learning. Most of my resources include some type of writing component, even if it is just a simple reflection.
