I have taught high school English in a public school setting for three years. I have written curriculum and created materials for county-wide use. I have a passion for collaboration among colleagues and for creating materials that are engaging and useful for teachers and students alike.
Incorporating all types of media (TV clips, film, music, art. ect...) into my instruction in order to engage students and help them expand their view of the world.
