I am entering my fifth year teaching high school English classes. Specifically, my background involves teaching courses in English 9, Creative Writing, Mythology, Science Fiction, and Fantasy. I also recently began teaching courses in the field of Mass Media. Prior to teaching in a high school setting, I was a private writing tutor for college students in need of support in reading comprehension, writing, and standardized test prep.
My teaching style varies with the needs and abilities of the class, but generally speaking I adopt both the demonstrator approach and the facilitator approach. I believe that it is essential for a teacher to lay the foundation of what students need to know, presenting students with resources and information through various formats such as lectures and multimedia presentations. However, I also believe it is important that teachers guide students in the process of self-learning, as it promotes independence, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving skills necessary to function efficiently in a postsecondary and workforce context.
Yet to be added
I graduated magna cum laude in 2011, earning my Bachelor in Science Education degree in the field of English. I also have a journalism certification.
My store primarily consists of quizzes and tests on novels often taught in high school English classes.
