TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Language Arts for 9 years. I also teach a Family Writing evening course as well as a Peer Writing after school program. Throughout the school year, I coordinate the annual Spelling Bee, the Academic Challenge program, and the annual Carnival community event.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is structured in discipline and lesson planning, but I enjoy laughing with my students and I aim to create a casual environment where my students feel comfortable.
