I began my teaching career with five years of 6th and 7th grade students. I taught Language Arts and Social Studies at an Alternative High School in Oregon for eight years. I currently teach Social Studies at an Alternative High School in Idaho, but maintain my passion for teen lit. I LOVE Alt Ed!
I love to use popular fiction, culture, and topics in my teaching. Make it interesting, people!
