In the last decade I have taught 6th-11th grade. My specialty is 8th ELA, but I have taught Writing, Media Skills, Pre-Algebra, US History, and Reading and Math Intervention. The cross-curricular nature of my experience lends itself well to creating more well-rounded materials.
- Minimal Lecturing - Interactive - Teacher-led Exploration - Hands-on Learning - Project-based Learning - Using Text Evidence - Encouraging Higher-order Thinking - Growth Mindset
I have been nominated to two committees that are in charge of developing and implementing CCSS in our district. I have also served on two curriculum selection committtees.
- Undergraduate in English Education - in progress: Masters in Curriculum and Instruction
I love my job! I love middle school kids, especially when finding successful strategies to get them engaged in learning.
