I am certified 5-12 in both English Language Arts and History. I began as a Curriculum Coordinator at a public middle school. I would take the curriculum that was being taught in the regular education classrooms and either modify what I was given or create completely new material. In this position I was creating special education curriculum for Science, Social Studies, and English, as well as teaching other teachers in the building how to modify curriculum for special education students. Now, I teach seventh grade English at a different public middle school.
I truly believe that every student can learn, and that every student has a unique way of learning. I have been moving towards a student-led classroom, because I believe that every student learns on a deeper level when they are able to teach themselves, and encouraged to struggle and wonder and create on their own.
