I have been teaching high school English since 2006. I also sponsor our school's Beta Club.
I used to create a teacher-centered room, but now I focus more on a collaborative atmosphere. I keep my lectures and instructions limited, and I rely heavily on scaffolding. (I teach, I do, we do, groups do, you do.)
I was recognized twice by my principal with a "Crystal Apple Award," which was given to teachers for exemplary practices. I have also been nominated for Teacher of the Year, but a more worthy colleague won.
Associate's Degree in General Studies in 2002 Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education: English in 2006 Master's Degree in Education: Secondary Reading Curriculum and Instruction in 2011
I'm happily married with three beautiful children. I love teaching, and now I'm finally ready to start sharing some of my products.
