My teaching focus is British and American Literature, and I strive to bring literature to life through modern-day technology and creative lesson plans. I also enjoy the challenge of making informational text interesting for reluctant readers!
I'm constantly trying innovative teaching strategies and love to switch things up so that students don't get bored!
* Level 5 teacher 4 years in a row *Educational Technology Presenter
I majored in English and have a Masters in English Education from East Tennessee State University; I graduated with honors in both of my degrees.
I put a lot of time and effort into designing creative lesson plans and hope that others can also benefit from my hard work.
