TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Language arts teacher, writer, coffee enthusiast, and cat lady. I've been teaching for 8 years, the last 6 of which have been Middle School English. I am a co-author of Poking the Bear: A Guide for Engaging in the Conversations that Matter Most. I have presented at various state and national conferences on assessment & grading practices, language arts instruction, social emotional learning, and equitable teaching practices. I have contributed chapters to innovative books on educational practice, including The New Teacher’s Guide to Overcoming Common Challenges and 100 No-Nonsense Things that ALL Teachers Should STOP Doing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

High energy, engaging, and centered around building a rapport with students to build lessons based on their interests.
