I currently teaching high school English Language Arts in a small town outside of Rochester, MN, and absolutely love it! I have taught two years of 8th grade and one of 7th as well. Most of my resource base caters to at-risk high school students who struggle with reading and writing. I hope to continue to build my repertoire and experience through my middle school experiences. I also have tutored students in ACT/SAT prep and reading comprehension through Huntington Learning Centers. Therefore, I have some good ACT resources that I've adapted and developed based upon my skills there.
