Throughout my teaching career, I have taught 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, and 11th ELA and Literature, 6th and 7th Social Studies, and K-2 and Middle School ESL.
I believe strongly in student choice and hands-on engagement in the learning process. Learning to write with evidence and analyzing literature are two of my favorite ELA topics to teach, but most of all, I love grammar -- commas, especially!

My B.A. is from Dordt University in Secondary Education: English/Language Arts, with endorsements in Middle School: ELA and Social Studies, along with a minor in TESL. In 2016, I completed my M.Ed. through Dordt University in Teacher Leadership: Curriculum and Instruction.
