My professional experience includes teaching Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies in grades 6 through 8 and substitute teaching from 5th grade through high school. I have also taught English Language Learners with an English proficiency of Level 3 and higher.
My teaching style reflects my absolute belief that all children can be successful in school with high levels of achievement if they are provided with the right tools and motivation. I bring direct experience with children and curriculum to all of my recommended classroom teacher resources. I love challenging students with standards-based teaching materials...and having some fun at the same time!
Yet to be added
I hold a Bachelors degree in English from Florida Southern College as well as an Illinois Initial Secondary Teaching Certificate with High School English Language Arts and High School ESL endorsement along with a Language Arts Middle School endorsement.
I love teaching, both in the classroom and in a yoga studio, but more than that, I love creating effective teaching tools for students that scaffold content efficiently. The right teacher resources in the hands of a dedicated educator are what allow us to really impact students' lives for the better each and every day.
