TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Each and everyday I have the pleasure of teaching students who are in the most awkward stage of their life. There is never a dull moment in the life of a teacher in a "transitional" grade level. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love finding creative and innovative ways to engage my students. I am passionate about increasing rigor in my classroom through real-world connections and Kagan grouping activities.
