I'm in my 4th year teaching at a Title I high school in the Atlanta suburbs. During my time teaching 9th and 10th grade, I've had the opportunity to teach on-level, honors, and gifted courses, in addition to AP Language & Composition. I'm currently part of a business-focused academy, so my lessons tend to foster connections to the real world and are interdisciplinary in nature.
I run a student-centered classroom. I rarely lecture for more than a few minutes at a time. My goal is to facilitate learning through engaging activities such as write-arounds, stations, and digital peer reviews.

I named my TpT store Classics and Composition because my resources here will focus on two things: my love of teaching classics in a way that makes their relevancy explicit and my love for teaching writing.
