TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a relatively new New York teacher transplanted to Tennessee. I'm in the middle of my second year teaching at a low-income school with overwhelming reading gaps and a large English language learner population.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach within a reader's and writer's workshop framework, with daily independent reading and mini-lessons. I believe that the best way to overcome massive reading and writing gaps is to let my students guide the class based on their interests and strengths. We focus a lot on social advocacy and human rights.
