TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a high school English teacher in Northeast Indiana, and I hold a license for grades 5-12 in Language Arts and Historical Perspectives. With teaching experience in parochial, charter, and public schools, I currently teach AP English Language and Composition and Sociology, but have also taught English 9, 10, 11, and Yearbook during my six years of teaching.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love connecting language to life, and drawing students into texts they never expected to connect with. I take particular pride in how many AP juniors end the year with The Scarlet Letter being their favorite book.
