TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 25th year working in education full-time! As a veteran educator, I've enjoyed teaching 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. I'm passionate about creating resources for students that make rigorous learning fun, engaging, and interactive!

The vast majority of my career has been spent teaching 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts, integrating Social Studies and Science as frequently as possible. My strengths include classroom management that maximizes learning, differentiation, and teaching literacy skills. In addition to classroom teaching, I have been a curriculum writer since 2012. I'm so passionate about providing high-quality resources for teachers and students around the country that I now write curriculum full-time, with occasional subbing or tutoring so my resources (and classroom management!) stay relevant and practical.

Teaching is my heart, and I am passionate about literacy! I believe that literacy is the foundation of all learning. When students are better readers and writers, their performance in every subject increases, and they are better able to think and to communicate their thoughts. Literacy is the most significant skill needed to function effectively in school, in the workplace, and in society. It is vital to a successful education, career, and quality of life. Literacy enables students to become active and independent thinkers and lifelong learners, which is empowering and sets students up for success in whatever endeavors they choose to pursue! When people are able to function at high levels of literacy, doors of opportunity are opened for them that would not be available otherwise -- and I want to help open as many doors as possible for students!

MY TEACHING STYLE

All learners have different and unique learning styles, so I strive to integrate a variety of teaching styles in my classes and curriculum, including standards-based resources, hands-on-learning, generous doses of collaborative projects, critical thinking activities, authentic learning opportunities, frequent dashes from my bag-of-tricks, and liberal pinches of humor!

I believe it's important for students to engage every day with learning materials, one another, and their teachers because active learning results in challenged, motivated, life-long learners! I work to continuously refine and adapt resources to reflect students' current needs, interests, and schema. I also strive to create resources that are rigorous, relevant, ready-to-use, and fun for students!
