TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For more than 18 years, I've brought my love of literature and writing to high school students in New Mexico, California, and Idaho. I've taught them all, from the highest-achieving honors student to the continuation kid on the verge of dropping out of school. What every student wants is to be inspired, to learn, and to have some fun while at school. I hope my passion for learning and for kids comes through in these materials. Over the years, I've also taught journalism, health, and history classes. I've also run summer school programs for elementary and middle-school students. Before becoming a teacher, I was a newspaper reporter and editor, so ink is in my veins and writing is the critical piece of all the different classes I teach.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In all subjects, students want to be challenged while also finding relevancy between the materials being taught and their own lives. I work continuously to refine and adapt my materials to reflect current events and trends with which the students are familiar. When deciding how to present a lesson, I always try to think how I would have wanted to learn this material when I was 15 or 16 and then move in that direction. You can read more about my classroom adventures at my blog, laurarandazzo.com.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned my B.A. in journalism and my secondary teaching credentials in English, history, and health science.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love clean, modern design and try to bring those elements into my materials. Since I teach high school students with a high level of media savvy, I work to make my materials attractive to that audience. Everything I design is meant to be relevant, rigorous, and ready to use!
