TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the last 15 years, I have taught all Social Studies areas and in a few ELA classrooms. My experience ranges from teaching grades 6 through 12, and I have had all levels of classes, including Special Education collaboration and gifted and talented. I have also taught on an advanced curriculum team, AP courses, and honors/advanced classes at the middle and high school level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Multiple-Intelligences with many interactive and group-based activities. I also love using centers, even at the high school level! It works!
