TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I combine my experience in the classroom as a middle school ELAR teacher who taught both reading and writing with my experience in professional industries as a technical writer and proofreader to generate interesting, engaging, downloadable, print-ready material. While the quirky, animated, and sometimes snarky middle school mind can be wildly untamed, it also generates unlimited, refreshing chances to engage students through curiosity and help them master skills.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I create purposeful instructional material for middle school that I believe engages students and saves teachers hours of precious time. Educators deserve reliable, high-content, focused material that includes terminology, definitions, examples, differentiated practice activities, and answer keys that produce formative and summative grades. Students should enjoy eagerly participating, creating, and forming connections as they learn, apply, and master skills. My goal is to provide teachers with downloadable, print-ready materials that offer focused student growth as well as opportunities to lead into a variety of additional lessons and discussions.
