TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught Kindergarten ESL up to 12th grade AP Literature, and every aspect of reading and writing in between. Now I'm an instructional coach for K-12 ELA, sharing best practices and resources with my teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Learning is an experience. Everything else is just information. Students will learn more from doing the work themselves, while the teacher acts as a facilitator and guide along the way. I believe in students setting their own goals, tracking their own progress, and helping each other succeed. Above all else, I think teaching and learning should be fun. I try to integrate lots of hands-on activities and end every unit with a review game. Class goes fast when students (and their teachers) are having fun.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a Classroom Fund Grant Recipient, 2011. I'm also a member of TCTELA (Texas Council for Teachers of ELA). I attended the ASCD (Association of Supervision and Curriculum Design) conference in Los Angeles in 2014 and have been an ELA Curriculum Writer since 2013. I'm also a published author and member of SCBWI (Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.Ed, University of Mary Washington, K-12 ESL License, 6-12 ELA License, GT supplemental, Danielson Teaching Framework Certified.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm having an Awesome Year! I hope you will too!
