I have taught for ten years in grades ranging from advanced 6th grade to standard level 12th grade. I have experience with British, American, and World literature, and spent several years teaching IB English Parts 1 and 4. I also taught dual-enrolled English Composition to junior level high school students.
I like to encourage student independence in literary analysis, so most of my lessons include scaffolded instruction that can be eased away to promote student independence. I like to encourage student annotation and close reading of text, and I try to encourage multiple methods of demonstrating mastery of concepts in my unit plans.
