TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have spent one full year as a junior and freshman English teacher with plenty of previous co-teaching experience in other classes (including one junior high classroom).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I embrace theatrics and discussion in the classroom (and thankfully teaching literature makes this quite easy). I love to have students up on their feet, living and experiencing the content. I also feel that students can learn just as much from their peers as they can from me, so I try to have my students discuss class topics as much as possible.If you have me as a teacher, you will be talking/acting/moving in my class.
