TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This will be my second year teaching 6th grade. Though I've interned with kindergarten classrooms and assisted in collegiate ESOL classes, before fulfilling my lifelong dream of teaching, I worked a variety of jobs, including patent legal assistant, sandwich and salad artist, grocery clerk, hostess, ice cream scooper, SAT tutor, and digital media manager.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Interdisciplinary, eccentric, and innovative. On any given day, I might be teaching Shakespeare through use of rap or hip-hop, or using '60s protest songs to analyze theme and central idea.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have won numerous awards for my creative writing and public speaking skills, including placing or winning in the Nile Foundation Cultural Essay Contest, the Black History Month Middle School Essay Contest, the Modern Woodmen of America School Speech Contest (1st in the nation), the Earl K. Wood Scholarship, the University of Florida International Center for Study Abroad Scholarship, and others. My poetry has been published in Tea Literary Magazine and Florida Best Emerging Poet's Anthology. I hope to one day publish some of my children's books that I work on in my free time.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in English, minor in History, in 2014. I studied abroad at the University of Cambridge during the summer of 2013.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My hobbies are canoeing, reading, trying new cuisines, piano, guitar, ukulele, mandolin, exploring new springs or parks, and watching BBC shows.
