TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Freshman English since 2009 and I love it! If you want engaging lessons specifically tailored for this age group, check out my store!

MY TEACHING STYLE

First of all, I really love teaching 9th grade and all of my lessons are designed with that age group in mind. I have taught all of these activities in class. For me, simplicity is key. Many things I teach in 9th grade are new to my students, so I keep things as simple as possible. I create materials that students respond well too and find interesting. I believe in best practices, learning strategies, etc; however, I firmly believe that if curriculum is not relevant, straightforward, and easy to absorb, you are fighting an uphill battle. If you like what I have, but feel like it needs more, tweaked, or adjusted to be better, let me know! I'm always looking to improve; just make sure what you say is POSITIVE. We deal with enough negativity in our jobs.
