I have been teaching at the middle school level for the past seven years and have taught in both inner city and suburban districts. I have experience teaching both Language Arts and Spanish.
I believe strongly in a very organized approach to instruction. I like to plan things out well in advance and have backup plans in place because anyone who teaches middle school knows that it is anything but predictable! I have many routines in place so my students have a clear idea of my practices and expectations. This makes for smooth school days filled with streamlined and relevant instruction!
I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish, a Master's in Education, and an MBA from the Kelley School of Business.
I am licensed in ELA, Spanish, Social Studies, Reading, and Business. I absolutely love creating resources for my students, and this gives me a great way to share them with others!
