I am currently a middle school ELA teacher for Clark County School District. Prior to that, I was a fifth grade teacher for 6 years. Being able to focus on my two passions - reading and writing - in the classroom is awesome!
I believe that students need to take ownership of what they are learning for it to become ingrained. In my classroom, students work together collaboratively using technology, but also have opportunities to work independently.

I have a mild case of OCD when it comes to organization and neatness. So, I find myself recreating a lot of worksheets, tests, handbooks etc. - using cute font (of course)!
