11 years teaching mostly 9th grade and several years of 10th grade
I tend to like to give my students a lot of guidance prior to reading a novel and help them follow the characters and plot while reading so that they truly understand the story. I also really emphasize theme and summary after reading. We do group work at times when appropriate, but when I'm introducing something new, I like to make sure they have the tools and information they need to be successful.

I have been teaching high school for 11 years, and I definitely am passionate about my career. Over the years, I have tweaked and improved the materials I use, and I feel this has improved my success as a teacher. Hopefully you will find some of what I have to be beneficial in your classroom.
