TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I first became a teacher in the 07-08 school year and have been a full-time English teacher since then. I love my district and my students-- I teach on a cooperative team for students who all failed 9th grade. We offer a credit recovery program on team, as well as teaching the standard 10th grade curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in interactive, hands-on learning, but I believe to get to that point, students need the building blocks of the unit being taught.
