TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching at the same suburban middle school since 2005. I've taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade ELA!

MY TEACHING STYLE

A combination old school and new school: I'm constantly trying to "mix it up" to keep my classroom fresh and exciting for my students! A good day is a day when I set an activity in motion, and the students work collaboratively to complete it!
