I am in my seventh year of teaching, ranging from grades 8th-12th. I have been teaching American Literature and British Literature since 2011. I am currently teaching at a rural school district, but have multiple experiences in inner-city and larger districts- my students are always the best, even in their tough years! It is a blessing to be surrounded by young adults, and am thankful for them every day (well, most days. Let's be honest here...).
I love creative lessons and open discussions. My students do a lot of hand-on activities and are great at debates!
