TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught seniors and sophomores language arts, creative writing, and public speaking. I am currently teaching 8th grade language arts.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is similar to that of an elementary teacher - hands on, interactive, collaborative, etc. Even though I teach high school aged students, I feel it is necessary for students to engage in activities that heighten their curiosity and encourage creativity. This will all be reflected in my store.
