I am a certified 7-12 English Language Arts instructor in New York where where I teach high school and college-level English courses.
I believe that the person who is doing the most talking is doing the most learning. That's why I'm interested in planning lessons that are student-centered, and that imagine the teacher as a facilitator. Focus: Critical thinking, media literacy, cooperative learning, student-centered learning, #CCSS
My work has appeared on ReadWriteThink, and I was previously a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) summer stipend grant recipient.
