I have taught High School ELA and 6th grade ELA! In high school, I have taught Reading 10, Writing 10, American Literature, Creative Writing, Earthbook (a school-wide literary magazine), and Modern Prose.
I like to incorporate real-life issues into my classroom and have my students create ways to solve them. I believe students should see how our teachers apply to them right now, right away. I incorporate pop culture, yet keep the strong academic background in my lessons.
I am the high school liaison regarding PowerSchool Pro and Learning and am currently serving on my Professional Development team for my building.
Bachelors at the University of Northern Iowa
My biggest nightmare is kids falling asleep or being bored in my classroom. I work hard to keep it upbeat and interesting for every student.
