I have had the privilege of working with sixth, seventh, eighth, eleventh, and twelfth grade students so far in my career. I am also working in a program funded through a RuralLIFE grant that is working to help teachers improve literacy achievement in rural schools. I am currently attending Carson Newman University for my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Reading Specialist License.
My teaching style focuses on the Socratic Method. I love posing difficult questions and listening to my students reason through a problem aloud. I employ kinesthetic activities and gamification whenever I can, and I try to include a variety of activities within each lesson to maintain student engagement (and let's be honest--my engagement).
