TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 12 years experience teaching writing, grammar, literature, and reading. For nine of those years, I taught in a 1-1 laptop school where I used technology extensively with my students. Before teaching, I wrote for a parenting magazine, writing articles about education, health, and parenting. My class periods were 45 minutes long—often shorter. I specialize in time-saving activities and resources that cover a lot of content. I also worked for a major educational publisher, marketing language arts and social studies programs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My favorite quote about educating is from Rita Pierson: “Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” As a teacher, I model thinking while reading and writing and color-code everything!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Gold Award for Excellence in Writing from the Parenting Publications of America (4 times) Coached the 8th Grade Wordsmith team to win 1st Place!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.A. Education, M.A. Journalism, B.A. English

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Freelance writer and editor for 10 years. Worked for an educational publisher for six years, marketing social studies and language arts textbook programs.
