I now teach as a High School English Language Arts Teacher in Ohio! Here, we are not assigned to one grade level. We teach 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade with all different schedules every semester! This semester, I am teaching 9th and 10th grade co-taught with an intervention specialist, regular 9th grade, and 10th grade.
I am a teacher who LOVES mixing it up. Classroom rapport/student engagement is a huge value in my teaching philosophy. I will try just about anything to grab my students' attention! I love classroom transformations for new units to get students excited, learning stations, projects, and escape rooms to captivate even the most reluctant of students, and creating a healthy and safe environment for my students. One of my featured products, "Building Classroom Rapport: Mental Health and Wellness Activity - Stations" will help take a burned-out and stressed group/teacher and turn them into one that grows together through a day of therapeutic and positive activities via learning stations. Mental health is so important and this activity supports the teacher and students' mental health for a supportive classroom environment. I like to think that the activities I create are new, innovative, and creative! I will continue to challenge myself to research new education trends and make it relevant in my classroom and products!
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Bowling Green State University and was lucky enough to win several scholarships and awards through leadership positions I held in educational organizations. I am also certified as a Highly Qualified Teacher.
I attended Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio and graduated with a Bachelor's in Science in Education for Adolescent Young Adult Education with a specialization in Integrated Language Arts. I am working on my Masters in Educational Leadership.
I hope the resources I can provide will make your life easier and enhance the fun and engagement you have already created in your classroom! Please reach out to me at email@example.com or @booksandbloomteaching on Instagram if you have any questions! :)
