I am dual certified in 7-12 English and K-12 Special Education and have been teaching for eleven years. I currently teach integrated/collaborative 10th grade English (a mix of regular and special education students) and two public speaking/debate electives. I have also taught several self-contained and integrated special education courses at the 8-10th grade levels. I specialize in developing materials for public speaking, debate, and argumentative writing.
I take pride in creating engaging lessons and materials for my students. I believe in collaborative learning opportunities that are student-directed and differentiated.
