I have been teaching high school for the past 12 years. Throughout that time, I have taught English at every secondary level. I have also taught multiple levels of ELD (ESL). In addition to actual "in class experience", I have been a curriculum development specialist for online education through California State University Fullerton (CSUF) and have worked extensively with the Common Core Standards.
