TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have eight years experience teaching 6th-, 7th-, and 8th graders and I am in my first year teaching juniors and seniors. I love HEADLINE POETRY as a way to get kids of all levels writing creatively!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am all about encouraging students to find their writers' voices. Most kids, in my opinion, lack writing confidence. And what grows a student's confidence? Practice. I advocate that quantity cultivates quality. True, the writing will not magically correct itself, but as a student gains confidence in their ideas and writing skills, they will attain an intrinsic desire to improve their skills. Practice, practice, practice fosters more effective writers. And also: HEADLINE POETRY!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My highest honor is when a former student tells me they learned to love writing when I was their teacher. That's why I do this job: to create writers... not more kids who can respond to an argumentative writing prompt, but more kids who desire to express themselves through the written word. Each year, ten to twelve of my students win awards in writing contests. I am proud that many students of my past and present students have won regional, state, and national writing awards. See my blog for posts about these writing contests. Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Teacher
