TEACHING EXPERIENCE

With four years of English teaching experience at the secondary level, my lessons have been adapted to meet the attention spans or students and demands of current curriculum across the nation.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I enjoy using activities to teach students and following up with an extension that allows them to show what they have learned and think critically. Most of my lessons hit all DOK levels.
