TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught grades K-7 since January 2009. I currently teach ELA, Social Studies (Ancient Civ) and Reading Intervention at the middle school 6th and 7th grade levels. Prior to teaching, I worked the non-profit early childhood education field.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in creating a safe learning space that enables all types of students to grow. I like to incorporate current events and pop culture into my differentiated modalities of teaching. Information needs to be taught in many different ways to ensure that all students have the opportunity for mastery.
