I taught 8th grade language arts for 12 years before becoming a full-time mom. I currently teach cyber school English 9 and 10 part time.
I believe students need to grapple with a text in order to understand and appreciate it fully; therefore, my lessons tend to be more analytical in nature. However, I also recognize that analysis can be difficult for middle school students, especially those who are more creative or practical. Consequently, I develop curriculum which eases students into analysis through modeling, partnering, and framing, while differentiating for more creative and practical learners.
Awarded grad school fellowship and "Top of Program" distinction. Graduated undergrad summa cum laude.
