TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had the privilege of teaching and developing curriculum for six years. I have classroom experience in 3rd and 5th grade. Much of my material is geared towards late elementary/middle school students, but can easily be adapted for both younger and older students! I am also the author of three published books and understand the difficulties of teaching writing to students of all age groups.
