TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over five years with experience as a long-term guest teacher as well as Social Studies grades 6th, 7th, and 8th.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that every student should be set up for success through differentiated, engaging materials. I also believe that students need to read, write, and create to fully understand so you will see a strong correlation between Social Studies and English/LA in my lessons.
