My classroom starts with creating a safe space. Once that is established, it is as student-centered as I can make it. I have high expectations for my students, and my lessons and projects push for quality and creativity.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am within my first couple of years teaching, and I have taught 10th grade World Literature, 11th and 12th grade US Literature, AP Literature, AP Psychology, and Journalism, as well as test prep classes for the SAT and helped run an after school peer-tutoring service. I have also taught English language classes to young adults in China. I also have experience advising high school Gay-Straight Alliances.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I consider a class successful when my students have talked for 95% of the class and I've talked for 5%. I think a strong English class involves as much discussion of the text as possible while focusing on the literary elements and what makes the book interesting. I value critical and creative thinking, and I push the value of analysis in writing. My classes, my lessons, my projects are all designed to challenge the students to produce strong, quality work that takes some thinking and some creativity. I lead through the passion I have for my subjects and the care I have for my students.
