TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Before teaching, I worked as editor-in-chief of an online arts magazine and interned sporadically as a light assistant in theaters. In 2012, I began my career as an ELA teacher, working primarily with middle grades. I work with inclusion, regular, and advanced classes, so differentiation is very important to me. In 2017, I graduated with my masters in ESL Education, so I hope to provide many resources to help these students. I also teach an elective dramatic arts class for middle schoolers. I helped write pacing guides for my school system and I am RTI chair for my school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in student-centered classrooms that are based on peer interaction. I am passionate about social justice and cultural diversity in my classroom environment and curriculum.

Certified Google Educator, Level 1.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S.,E. Secondary Education Language Arts, 2012 M.A.Ed., English as a Second Language Education, 2017.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Outside of the classroom, I am passionate about music, food, and travel. My husband is a professional musician, so music is a constant in our home and we make it a priority to attend live music performances. In the coming years, we want to travel more to experience new cultures. I am a self-titled "nerd" and I love to soak up any new information I can, whether it be from books, audiobooks, documentaries, news radio, or reliable internet sources. I believe appreciating culture and building bridges are the keys to educational success.
