TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 7th grade English in Champlin, MN, for 9 years and then followed my passion to teach urban learners in St. Paul, MN (6th grade Reading and Writing Workshop), where I'm currently in my 4th year. I've also taught Adult Basic Education through a local GED program and other evening courses in Developmental Reading at a Century College (a two-year college).
