I have 26 years experience in the classroom teaching English Language Arts, Reading, English as a Second Language, Gifted and Talented, and Co-teaching Special Education. My responsibilities included: mentoring new teachers, writing curriculum, test writing, writing lesson plans, and Department Head/Lead Teacher.
I prefer a hands-on, student centered approach to learning which gives students' choices and ownership of their own success.
