I have been a sixth grade English Language Arts teacher for ten years. My previous teaching experience includes elementary school and preschool.
I consider my classroom to be a work in progress. Although this is my eleventh year teaching sixth grade ELA in the same classroom, I never do things exactly the same from one year to the next. I am always looking for that "just right" balance of student engagement and proficiency. I think the year that I finally think I have it all figured out, it will be time to retire! :)
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelor's degree in elementary education and a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in literacy. I am certified to teach grades 1-6 as well as 5-8 English.
I am a New England native, married with two dogs, a lover of animals, the environment, poetry, photography, and all things creative and literary.
