TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my fourth year teaching in Charlotte, North Carolina. I taught 11th grade, American Literature my first year, and I am now teaching 10th grade World Literature. All of my assignments and lessons are directly aligned with the Common Core standards.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to question my students using in depth questioning techniques that have stemmed from the type of questions they will see on the North Carolina Common Core Aligned State Test. The questions force the students to analyze and synthesize the texts they are working with.
