English teacher for 8 years in California. Taught honors classes, numerous electives including poetry, and creative writing. I have attended seminars on AP English, was a master teacher for multiple years, took the lead in cooperative learning strategies and was instrumental in helping use student data to produce better assessments, and lesson plans. Now, I am a home school teacher who is teaching preschool and 1st grade.
I love to use literature and non-fiction pieces to promote critical thinking skills and to promote student learning in a thoughtful and productive way.
