Over the last 10 years, I have taught everything from elective senior English courses to regular education 7th grade English classes utilizing the co-teaching model. In addition to teaching during the regular school year, I have taught summer school for the past 11 years. This has been primarily at the middle school level.
I work closely with the social studies teacher on my team to complete cross-curricular projects and writing tasks. I utilize online learning programs to increase student to student and student to teacher interaction/discussion. However, I also feel that, when it comes to writing, nothing can replace paper and pencil- graphic organizers, drafting, editing, and revision. I believe in student led discussions and work to create an active learning environment via socratic seminar.
