Animal Farm can serve multiple purposes for allowing students to learn the important lessons from the story. As a teacher, I recommend using it as a writing opportunity because it will reinforce the themes and topics addressed in the story.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My first three years of teaching were in a low socio-economic school district teaching English-Language Arts. Due to the needs of the students, I designed assignments that were specifically catered to help them be successful.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Lessons are broken down step-by-step to allow scaffolding for even the most struggling students.
