TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my teaching career in 2007 and have been involved in education in three different states! I teach middle school English Language Arts and Remedial Reading classes. Teaching is my passion and I love creating high-quality resources to help my fellow-teachers!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe learning should be FUN! I believe in addressing a wide variety of learning styles. As such, my materials utilize a combination of whole-class instruction, cooperative group learning, partner projects and independent work.
