TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started teaching 8th Grade Language Arts in 2012-2013 after graduating from the University of Southern Indiana in May of 2012.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a pop-culture-centric, joke-telling, attention-grabbing, problem-posing, test-conquering, learning facilitator.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I consider it an honor that over 2,500 people have downloaded one of my resources!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA in English-Creative Writing and a BA in English Teaching. I also studied comedic performance and writing at the world renowned Second City in Chicago, Illinois. Studying improvisation and comedy has molded me into the educator I am today!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Creating creative resources (worksheets, flip charts, analogies, lessons) is seriously one of my hobbies. I'm so happy to share my resources here on TPT!
