I had the pleasure of teaching 3rd grade for 7 years before becoming an Adjunct Instructor and teaching in a bachelor's program for Teacher Education for the last 6 years. I worked for 3 years as a freelance writer for Write Score, Inc., developing and writing reading assessments, reading lessons, and writing lessons.
I believe in making learning engaging but also making it relevant and connected to the "real world". Equipping students for life is my priority.
