I've been in secondary education in Michigan for 19 years. I've taught at the high school level, but have spent the last 11 years at the middle school level, teaching ELA and Social Studies.
I create a collaborative, safe, learning environment that focuses on student progress. I tend to use my dry wit and self-deprecating manner to build rapport with students.
