I have had the pleasure of teaching middle school language arts for 17 years. My experiences have taught me the importance of a sense of humor and patience! My background also includes teaching college English courses on an adjunct basis.
My teaching style is primarily based on collaboration. I enjoy having my students work together for a purpose. I thrive on an active class where discussion is encouraged. It is my belief that academic conversation builds language which helps develop stronger literacy skills for both reading and writing.
I was honored with the teacher of the year award for my school and even further honored to go on to win teacher of the year for our district.
I have a Bachelor's of Arts in English and a Master's of Art in reading and literacy.
