TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching middle school since 2008 in Georgia. I love it! I have taught both Language Arts and Social Studies. I am currently only teaching Social Studies, and focus 100% of my time on it! .

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love using technology in my classroom, but sometimes creating projects can be great as well. I am really big in creating games as a way to help students learn and/or review the material.
