TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching middle school English Language Arts for eight years. During that time, I have taught both 7th and 8th grade on a variety of levels including inclusion classes, grade level classes, accelerated classes, and Gifted and Talented classes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a Writing Workshop approach to teaching Writing. To teach reading, I use thematic units, novel units, literature circles, paideia seminars, and many other strategies.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

National Board Certification in Early Adolescence Language Arts; Endorsement in Gifted and Talented Education

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts in English from Virginia Commonwealth University; Masters of Arts in Teaching from Clemson University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am currently in my eighth year of teaching and have taught in both an urban and a rural setting. I have been told by several colleagues that I should publish a book of my charts and graphic organizers, so I thought that I would start by publishing a few here.
