I've been teaching for 16 years. My current experience is in an 8th grade English/Reading classroom. My 10 years prior took place in all levels of high school English including basic, honors, and AP courses.
I feel that I am a teacher who can only improve with the help of my students. I have great classroom management, and I constantly seek feedback from my students in all aspects of my instruction. A classroom is a two-way street and one that we both share in order for it to be successful. This has made a huge impact on not only my instructional methods but also the offerings I've put on Teachers Pay Teachers.
