TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Our names are Tammy and Shannon. We are two middle school language arts teachers in South Carolina. Tammy has been teaching for twenty-three years. She has taught first grade, fourth grade, special education, eighth grade social studies, and seventh grade language arts. Shannon has been teaching for eighteen years and has taught both seventh and eighth grade language arts and English I. We currently teach seventh grade language arts and work together to plan for our students. We continually develop resources for our own classrooms.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe that all students need to be engaged when learning and that learning should be fun! We tackle Common Core standards head on and are always looking for a fresh approach to teach ELA in the middle!
