As a 5th year English teacher, in a highly diverse large public high school, I have devoted a large amount of my time crafting quality lesson plans for my students. I have taught every grade, 9-12, over the course of my tenure in the NYC Department of Education. My greatest success has come with my consistent 85% pass rate among 9th grade students on the NYS English Regents; a test that is usually taken by 11th grade students. Additionally I am a proponent of integrating Common Core level work side by side with a strong literature rich program of study.
I am a proponent of differentiated instruction and thus my lessons have various entry points. Additionally my lessons focus on building core skills such as annotations and higher level questions.

Teaching English is my PASSION! Nothing is more satisfying than creating a great lesson plan and then seeing my students' eyes light up with understanding as I execute it.
