I have been teaching for five years in a Northern Virginia middle school, I love my job and I love my students. I have successfully engaged many apprehensive learners with my assignments. I like that my students often do not realize they are learning until it's too late! Our test scores have steadily improved due to our traditional but modern approach to teaching. We infuse old-school methods with cutting edge ones to produce students who not only achieve academically, but become life-long readers.
