I just finished my first full year of teaching! I worked with 5th/6th graders in a highly urban middle school in Minnesota teaching English Language Arts. Though it was challenging, I learned so much, and developed my own means to engage students and promote student learning and growth!
Student engagement, student engagement, student engagement! Nothing I do as a teacher is as important as making sure that my students are engaged in the classroom. Engaging students in the lessons is what promotes learning and assists students in finding the ways that they learn best.
School-wide Accelerated Reader (AR) Coordinator, Middle School Literacy Team Representative, National Honor Society Member, Sigma Tau Delta Member.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls with my bachelor's degree in Broad Area English Education.
I recently got married to the love of my life, and I couldn't be happier! When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, hiking, watching movies, playing video games, and exploring new places in and around Minnesota! :)
