I have taught 7th grade for three years in Des Moines, Iowa. Our curriculum is in line with the Common Core and we do standards referenced grading. This year I am co-teaching with a special education teacher so am developing more differentiated materials.
I LOVE making things engaging for kids. In my classroom I try to use videos, pictures, or short passages to maintain their interest. When introducing new objectives I do as much teacher modeling as possible.
Yet to be added
I graduated with my English Education degree with a Reading endorsement from the University of Northern Iowa in 2013.
My husband and I teach at the same school. In my off time I like to spend time with my cats, dog, and turtle. I really love music, which is probably reflected in my poetry material :)
