TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught middle school for 2 years. I'm currently in my 14th year of teaching high school English. I've also taught two courses on the college level and I did that for seven years. I have taught creative writing and public speaking electives in addition to regular English classes. Two years ago I taught AP English for the first time.

I decided to change the name of my store to Juggling ELA. I always feel like I'm doing a metaphorical juggling act. As an ELA teacher I need to teach novels, short stories, plays, poetry, different genres of writing, grammar, vocabulary, etc. I also feel like I'm teaching social studies some days with all the background information I need to know for the various works of literature. I've worked hard in the last 15 years and now I'm trying to help other ELA teachers through TpT. If you have any questions or suggestions let me know JugglingELA@gmail.com
