TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Public School teacher for 6 years

MY TEACHING STYLE

As an English / Language Arts educator my focus is on the development of reading, writing, and critical thinking skills in all students. I love my job and find English fabulously fascinating. But that's not true for every student that is enrolled in my required course. So, between those kinds of kids and because I'm easily distracted and a visual learner myself, I felt it was important to make resources for my students that were engaging in their content and their appearance!
