TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for 18 years. I have taught grades 3rd through 8th. I currently teach 6th Grade ELA and Science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that middle schools students learn best when they are engaged. I plan lessons that involve students and require them to think critically without solely relying on me to guide their thinking. My goal as a teacher is to promote independent questioning and thinking.
