I'm a new teacher with 3 years of full-time experience. I began teaching a 4th, 5th, and 6th grade combined, inclusive classroom. That was something! I'm now teaching within my certification as a 7th-12th grade English and History teacher at a small Christian charter school in Ohio.
I love to get the kids talking. I try to begin class with an initial discussion, have a teaching/lecture time for up to twenty minutes, and then let the students do something hands-on to reinforce the ideas that have been introduced.

I group up moving all over the country. We settled down long enough that I got to attend all four years at the same high school in Gallipolis, OH. I received my degree in Integrated Language Arts Education from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in 2012. I taught High School English for 5 years, and I am currently teaching College Writing and Introduction to Literature at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. If I could live in a library, I would. My house is pretty close though :)
