For 5 years I was a tutor and counselor for the juvenile justice system. I taught juniors and seniors for 1 year and for the past 4 years I have been teaching 8th grade at an inner city title one school.
I am a SIOP and CRISS integrated curriculum teacher. I believe heavily in scaffolding and augmenting lesson plans to challenge all levels of achievement and different kinds of learners.
