TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach 6-12th grade English at a small charter school. This has allowed me to work closely with a wide range of ages and ability levels and create a lot of interesting lessons!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love collaboration and group work. I feel that students learn best when they can explore the intricacies of a text together and build off of each other's ideas. I am also a firm believer that when it comes to literature there usually is no one correct answer, so a lot of my materials are open ended and allow for discussion.
