I've been teaching in NYC public schools for thirteen years in grades 7, 8 and 9. I am the author of Whole Novels For the Whole Class: A Student Centered Approach. I support teachers and schools to implement the whole novels method to promote love of reading, student autonomy, and intellectual and diverse reading communities.
I was trained in progressive, student-centered teaching at Bank Street College, and remain committed to putting this philosophy into practice in public school settings. I'm always striving to make my classroom an intellectually challenging, joyful, and personally fulfilling learning environment.
