TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 2014 Natonal Board Certified Teacher. I have been teaching for nine years. I have taught English 10, English 11, Pre-AP English 10, Pre-AP English 11, AP Language, and Journalism. I currently teach English 10, Pre-AP English 10, and Journalism.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach mainly through project based learning with the students steering the lessons. While the skill is teacher selected, the process is determined by the individual student or students (as I often use cooperative learning).My lessons are also Common Core related.
