TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a middle school teacher for 8 years. I have taught a variety of subjects ranging from Language Arts, Social Studies, and even an Introduction to Drama class for a couple of years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I enjoy working with students that are struggling and helping them to achieve a challenged goal. I also enjoy working with students to show them that they can go above and beyond what they expect of themselves and succeed.
