I taught High School Language Arts and Literature for seven years at a private school. I ran both the Language Arts and Literature Departments before leaving on maternity. As well, I tutored children in Reading Comprehension, Study Skills, Writing, and Literature for eleven years. I then went on to tutor students in a college setting. Whie raising my two children, I have been teaching online college courses in Writing for the past seven years.
I enjoy being creative with my assignments. I think it is important to keep the student in mind when creating materials. I have had a lot of success in the classroom with the curriculum I have developed over the years. My students have appeared engaged in the work I provide to them.
I received two separate grants to develop curriculum. With one grant, I created six different thematic units for Literature. With the other grant, I worked on curriculum for creative writing. My Master's Thesis was based on creating assignments that fostered students love for reading and writing. I studied different approaches that gained student interest and implemented a variety of successful assignments that proved my thesis.
I received my Bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Philosophy. I earned my Master's degree in Education.
