TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am one of those crazy souls who choose (and love!) to teach middle school! I currently teach 8th grade ELA and English 1, but I have taught 7th grade in the past. The 2016-2017 school year will be my fifth year teaching, and I am still loving every minute of it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in having student-centered lessons, so I try to design lessons that will engage students, get them up and moving, and involve their own lives and opinions.
