TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught high school English, at various levels, for 12 years, Currently, I'm an ELA Curriculum and Instructional Coach, and I also teach 12th grade English remediation classes. I strive to make reading and writing feel relevant and modern for students, so I try to incorporate technology, non-traditional texts, and interactive, hands-on learning as much as possible.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a mover! I like to have my students out of their seats, moving around the room, and learning without realizing it.
