TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I LOVE to create writing, reading, and digital ELA essentials for teacher learners who are in search of rigorous, creative, practical resources for their classrooms! I am a National Board Certified educator, and have been teaching high school English for 13 years in a nationally-recognized, blue-ribbon school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in creating a learner-centered classroom and am not a "sage on the stage." I love seeing students grow as thinkers, using technology to transform student learning, and coaching other teachers. I'm always working to make content and activities more engaging and applicable to the "real world."
