I have taught several subjects at the high school level. These levels include On-Level English I, Pre-AP English I, On-Level English III, On-Level English IV Advanced Placement Language and Composition, Advanced Placement Literature, and Theory of Knowledge Seniors. I currently work at a Title 1 school where I work with all levels of students and love it! I am also certified in teaching Speech 8-12. I have written the English IV Curriculum for our district, and I am also the AP English Lead for our campus.
I truly believe in hands on, engaging lessons. I like to get the students out of their seats and involve them in critical thinking challenges, activities and immersion lessons!
