Prior to my teaching experience (I've been teaching for about 16 years now) I was an editor and writer in the journalism field. This has helped me bring some extra insight into the classroom. I taught in elementary and recently switched to middle school. I also teach a community college writing class. I currently teach 6th grade Language Arts.
Casual, comfortable, I don't want the students to be afraid of me. Socratic method . . lots of questions and answers.
Gosh, so many that I could never list them here. . geez. .
