TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my eighth year teaching middle school English, grades 6 and 7. I have taught inclusion, honors, and gifted classes, and I'm excited to share some of the lesson ideas that have worked well for my kids!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to help students see underlying concepts and connections. In life, they won't need to remember novel characters or the chronological order of events in a story, but they will need the thinking skills to analyze text, communicate effectively, and solve problems. I try to create activities that address specific standards while also helping students develop a general understanding of greater concepts that connect to their lives.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

This isn't actually an award for me, but I'm super proud of it: I had a spelling bee student two years ago make it to DC for the National Spelling Bee! SO COOL!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA in English from Old Dominion University with an emphasis in teaching grades 6-12.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a wife and also a mom to two beautiful girls! They're the reason I started selling on TpT. Thanks for visiting my store! :) Follow English Teacher Mommy on Pinterest!
