I am fully credentialed, CLAD , and NCLB qualified English teacher with more than 18 years experience in the secondary classroom, and two years at the middle school level.
I have a hands on approach towards teaching my students. I see technology as a valuable tool to assist in providing my lessons. I use a variety of strategies to help my students understand the different concepts and standards that make up my curriculum. On any given week, you can observe me using both group activities, one on one activities and individual seat work within my classroom.

Our world is made up of a multitude of personalities. With this variety comes an understanding that all of us, students and teachers alike, don’t always learn and succeed at the same rate, nor in the same way. As such, a large capacity to adjust teaching strategies is needed to accommodate these different learning styles.
