TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a middle school and high school English Language Arts teacher in a rural town in Wyoming. I am passionate about my job and love thinking creatively about how to better approach any subject within it. This is my 11th year as a teacher, and I am constantly striving to get better at it.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In terms of a "teaching style," my strongest, longest held belief is that there is no learning without relationships first. I believe in human potential, and that is our business as teachers.
