I taught 8th grade for 6 months, and this is my second year teaching high school. I formerly taught in an urban school district, but will be making the leap into the suburbs this fall!
I will be trying some flipped classroom lessons this year, but traditionally I use cooperative learning, balanced literacy, and reading and writing across the curriculum approaches.
I have my associate's degree in criminal justice, a bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature, and a Master of Arts in Teaching.
I am married to a middle school social studies teacher, and we live in an apartment with our 2 cats, who teach us the importance of patience every day.
