I'm a National Board Certified teacher, and in eight years of teaching I've worked with a diverse range of grades and students: 3rd-6th self-contained, middle and high school, GATE, special needs and ESL, and I currently teach English literature to Spanish students in Spain.
I use a variety of PowerPoints, writing & artistic activities, games, and partner/group/class discussions to keep my students engaged, and to better comprehend and think critically about literature and history. At the very least, I want my students to enjoy learning about the past and the power of language.
