I have 10 years experience teaching in high school, but for the past seven years, I have been at the middle school level. What a whacky bunch of kids who make me laugh every day! Currently, I teach with a team of teachers in an integrated classroom, incorporating science and social studies into our lessons through multi-grade classes. What a fulfilling school year working with colleagues with the same students aiming for the same goals.
I try to talk as little as possible, encouraging students to seek out answers for themselves. I also try to be funny, using witty sarcasm whenever possible. I tend to assign projects rather than worksheets, using research, technology, and oftentimes, collaborative learning.
Yet to be added
I attended Oakland University where I received my BA in English and History; I attended Wayne State Univeristy where I earned my Master of Arts of Teaching. I'm certified in English k-12, gifted education and elementary education. Too many workshops to list!
I am the Language Arts Department chair as well as a digital educator for our school. I have two of my own children in my classes and one more coming up next year!
