I have taught English in Texas for the last 4 years, often times with inclusion students, and always in Title 1 schools.
I love to change the way I teach things constantly, though I always lean towards simplest and shortest path. I believe that students learn best from a combination of community based learning and individual practice. I love Socratic questioning, Socratic seminar, independent reading projects, and journaling. I have lately grown to love sitting my students down in a small group set up and station teaching to check in on multiple simultaneous projects. My students always score highly on the dictionary portions of state tests because I am a child of the spell-check generation.
I have received an Arnie Trade Paperback Award, as well as the Rime of the Ancient Mariner Snark Award
I have a B.A. in English Creative Writing from the University of Houston.
I am a young teacher and I love making new resources. I am attempting to get all of my resources 100% digital!
