TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught professionally for three years in an urban middle school located in Southeast District of Columbia. Before moving to the District of Columbia, I volunteered throughout college teaching English/Language Arts to 8th graders at Breakthrough Atlanta, housed at The Lovett School, and to 7th graders at Breakthrough Norfolk, housed at Norfolk Academy.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I spend most of my time teaching building on the constructivist teaching practices I learned in undergraduate school and the inquiry-based processes I learned about in graduate school. So, I work to encourage risk and productive talk among my students so that they may develop their own ideas and opinions about their place in the world they live in. However, because I have worked exclusively with black and brown urban students, I use specific and consistent scaffolding strategies to build literacy, social skills, and academic confidence in my kids.
