TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching eighth grade English Language Arts for 5 years in a rural community in Massachusetts. I love my job and the creativity it allows. I am constantly revamping my lesson plans and materials so as to better teach my wonderful students! Over the past two years, I have become passionate about mentoring and helping new teachers gain confidence in their craft. I have mentored both first year and student teachers and I love how it also positively affects my own practice. I have now been promoted to full time mommy and Teachers Pay Teachers has been such a wonderful source of intellectual stimulation for me as well as my creative outlet.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to create a classroom atmosphere in which each and every student feels valued and work every day to foster within them a lifelong love of literature and learning in general. Students should leave my classroom at the end of year as stronger and more confident communicators both orally and in their writing.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Union College in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in English and minor in psychology and completed my master’s degree from Boston University in secondary English Education in 2011. I continue to further my education in teaching so as to become the best and most effective teacher I can be for my students. I am currently at my Masters +30.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Prior to teaching, I worked as a travel consultant for EF Educational Tours where I coordinated tours for teachers brave enough to journey with their students to other countries around the world. In my spare time, I enjoy running, yoga, skiing in Vermont, swimming on the Cape, and of course, reading as much as I can!

Teachers Pay Teachers

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
