Most of my career spent in 7th - 8th grade English Language Arts; I've been in middle school for 8+ years. Taught 1 year each in K, 2nd, 5th Each has it's perks. I apparently enjoy the upper grades since I quickly moved up levels. I'm completing my 12th year with the end of this school year 2012-13...
I have a versatile style of teaching. I find it imperative to act as a facilitator while students explore their capabilities, applying their knowledge to be successful in classroom assignments, projects, activities, and meeting expectations. Spontaneity is seems to keep my room alive as well!!
