I have been teaching for the past 8 years in northern Pennsylvania. I have worked with students from 8th-12th grade in ELA, Reading, English, and Poetry classes.
My teaching style incorporates: Learner-driven, critical thinking activities Problem-based learning Collaborative group work Self-paced activities through the use of Schoology Humor and fun

I obtained my B.A. in English with a minor in the Development of Psychology at Mansfield University, PA. I went on to earn my secondary English education certification at the master's level. I am currently enrolled online, taking Penn State University graduate courses.
I am creative, spunky, and just a bit sarcastic. I live in the wooded mountains of Pennsylvania with my husband, 12 year old son, 9 year old daughter, 2 miniature Schnauzers, and 2 chinchillas. I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, fishing, and exploring nature. I love to travel and investigate new cultures and lands several times a year. I was raised in the military and grew up in Asia and Europe. My fantastic upbringing continues to influence my life as a mother, teacher, and friend. :)
