TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, with a Bachelors of Science in Middle-Level English Education. In 2017, I earned a Master’s Degree in Instructional Design and Technology. In the Spring of 2019, I added Art to my teaching certifications! I am currently teaching 7th-grade ELA and 7th-grade Gifted and Talented ELA.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I enjoy creating my own teaching materials! I am a creative mind, and I love bringing my creativity into the classroom. I am constantly differentiating to meet the needs of my students. My lesson plans can change at any moment! I also have a passion for gamification and making standard-based learning engaging.
