I am currently in my eighth year of teaching middle and high school. I have taught a variety of classes: Mythology, British Literature, American Literature, Advanced Composition, and Speech.
My goal as a teacher is to make students want to learn and discover their own answers. I use things relevant to each individual student and aid them in becoming successful. I really enjoy incorporating history and art into my lessons. I enjoy doing lots of activities in the classroom that make the classroom stimulating for all types of learners.
I made the Sioux City Journal during my first year of teaching with a unit I designed concerning the Holocaust. I have published two poems.
I received my Bachelor's degrees in Secondary Education and English with a writing minor from Briar Cliff University located in Sioux City, IA.
Let me know if you want me to design anything special for you...for plans coming soon.
