I have experience teaching 7-12th grade students with my focus being high school. I am currently teaching research and writing at a community college. Most of my experience has been in alternative settings and or urban settings with either non proficient, special education, or reluctant learners.
I like to be as creative as possible. My goal is to get students excited about learning which at times is easier said than done. I find hands on and whole class activities are a great way to keep students engaged. But, I also believe in high standards, and preparing my students for college and career as much as possible.
Nominated as teacher-counselor of the year 2011-2012.
BA in English from Xavier University and an MA in English from John Carroll University!
I review young adult literature at YA Lit The Good The Bad The Ugly
