Five years experience teaching high school and college English. My high school students are low-income, first generation college students at an early-college high school. At the college level, I primarily teach composition and literature.
I believe in teaching that combines brief lecture with student-driven activities. I believe that lectures should be short, dynamic, and engaging in order to be successful, and that all handouts, activities, and assessments should allow students to take ownership of their work. I believe good teachers teach to the entire classroom by differentiating instruction and assessment.
Highest English reading and writing pass rate in Fort Worth Independent School District on state assessments.
Master's degree in English with a focus on composition and rhetoric with a minor in secondary education.
I believe teaching is my calling and I love what I do!
