TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach at a Discipline Alternative Education Program/Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program. Some students are considered GT, others are ESL/ELL or SPED students, while still others barely have a 3rd grade reading level. My teaching styles are nontraditional but have worked with the most difficult students. This is my third year teaching at the DAEP/JJAEP. Before that I tutored at Texas State University's Writing Center and guest lectured on writing throughout the university. I am English 7-12, ESL (EC-12) & SPED (EC - 12) certified and have 30 hours of GT endorsement.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use Kelly Gallagher's Deeper Reading Model mixed with Nancy Motley's Talk Read Talk Write model for ESL students. I am also using Writers Workshop for extensively this year.
