I mostly teach tenth grade World Literature, with a little Composition, English IV, and Inclusion English II blended in there, as well. I think that we should celebrate learning and education should seem like a party. I want my children to be excited to learn and to activate skills that will be beneficial to them, not only in the classroom, but also in the "real world." I love my job and I'm anxious to get to school every morning. I love to use creative lessons and ideas to "trick" my students into participating and learning something new. I love what I do, and I love sharing it with you! Visit my Blog: CelebratingSecondary.com
