Hello! I am a certified English Language Arts teacher 5-12, Literacy Specialist B-12, and a Special Education teacher 7-12. I currently work at as a Special Education teacher for grades 6-8 in Upstate NY. My lessons are differentiated to meet the needs of students and exemplify the Common Core State Standards.
I have a dynamic approach to teaching. I differentiate to meet the needs of my students, but also like to incorporate 21st century skills in my lessons. I have created authentic assessments and activities and correlated them to the Common Core State Standards for ELA. I enjoy having a classroom that has a student centered approach to learning!
Yet to be added
I have recently completed my graduate masters degree as a Literacy Specialist for Birth - 12th grade. I am also initially certified in Special Education 7-12, and English Language Arts 5-12.
My high school teacher inspired me to teach, and I continue to keep his lessons close to my heart and pass them on to my own students! Besides teaching, I love to bake and try new restaurants!
