I have been teaching high school English since 2011.
I love trying to incorporate a variety of activities for all types of learners to keep students engaged. I try to vary each class period with at least three different activities.

I come from a family of teachers: both sets of grandparents, my parents, and my brother and sister-in-law are/were teachers as well! I was raised seeing teaching as a respected profession and have always wanted to do the best I can to impact my students and, ultimately, the world! As a first-year teacher, I came into a very small school with no curriculum and no real English department--I WAS the department--and I relied a lot on the help of other experienced teachers as I developed my own curriculum. Although things have gotten much easier since then, I am still always looking for new ideas and ways to improve my instruction, no matter how long I have been teaching. Therefore, I hope that my materials will be helpful to a wide variety of teachers, whether it be a new teacher just trying to survive his/her first year or a veteran teacher simply looking for ways to change things up!
