I have 10 years of experience teaching Literacy and Language Arts to diverse learners in a variety of settings. I have taught reading and writing skills in literacy support classes for 9th and 10th graders over the past several years. Prior to this I taught middle school Language Arts, high school English, and Adult Basic Education. My teaching strength centers on my ability to scaffold instruction in a way that allows all students to be successful and engaged in learning.
Every class I teach has time for direct instruction with a focus on mini-lessons, partner work or cooperative learning groups, and independent practice. My classes are structured and engaging so that students work hard for the entire period and experience growth quickly.
