TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 6th grade Language Arts, Social Studies, Reading Intervention and Reading Advisory (for students at grade level and higher).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I want my students to enjoy being in my class, so we have lots of fun and are active, but I also hold them accountable. You know you're in trouble if I raise my voice.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year in 2009 - woot! Students also voted me "Most Unique" the following year. Not sure if that's a compliment or not.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned a BA in Sociology from the University of Puget Sound and my teaching certification from the UTEP program at Western Washington University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I almost exclusively read YA fiction and am always open to recommendations! I especially love read aloud suggestions. I've read The Lightning Thief to my kids for the last 5 years, but these days almost all of them have already read it, so it's time to find some new titles.
