I'm in my 12th year of teaching secondary English/Language Arts. My main area of experience is in 10th/11th grade College Prep English and 12th grade English.
I teach in many different ways. It all depends on the students, the situation, and the forum. I believe teachers must continually adjust their curriculum to fit the individual needs of each student.
One of my greatest personal accomplishments was helping my school to bring the percentage of students reading at or above grade level from 66% to over 80% in one year using a specialized curriculum I designed and implemented.
Grand Canyon University- Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Reading. Western Oregon University- Oregon State Initial Teaching Licensure (High School Authorization Level with a Content Area Endorsement in Language Arts). Portland State University- Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
I enjoy traveling around the United States with my husband and gleaning new teaching ideas from our experiences!
