TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching English in the public system for seven years. I've been in three different schools, and had the opportunity to teach a wide range of students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is organized and mostly linear, though I'm always integrating new ideas. However, I do my best to always be flexible with my teaching - I just find that I'm more sane when I have an idea of where I'm going and how we're going to get there.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nothing yet, but I don't know of anyone who does.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In addition to my teaching certification (specializing in English Literature and History), I also hold a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I like travelling and am a passionate reader (of course!).

Teachers Pay Teachers

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
