I am a passionate educator with six years experience teaching middle grades Language Arts & Social Studies, as well as, three years teaching experience in the secondary English and Social Studies classroom. I teach in face-to-face, blended virtual, and international classrooms. I am passionate about supporting educators in the k-12 learning environment, mentoring pre-service and in-service teachers, engaging in international partnerships, as well as, applying current technological approaches to deepen teaching and learning experiences.
In an ever-changing world, it is imperative to engage students in multiple learning styles and to prepare them for the 21st century using collaborative teaching and pedagogical approaches.
