TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts for the past six years in a rural town in Washington State. I graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Human Development. I received a second Bachelors in Education from Central Washington University with a minor in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have completed my Professional Certification and Master's Degree through City University of Seattle.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like a classroom that is heavily focused on student discourse and activity. I try to create lessons that appeal to different learning styles and personalities while still getting content knowledge across. I also enjoy of focusing on concepts that my students find intriguing and integrating that into my language arts classes - for example, I use the Holocaust as a jumping off point for historical fiction, 9/11 for creating fictional narratives, and bullying for writing research papers and building websites.
