Hi everyone! For the last decade I have served as a high school English teacher and adjunct English Instructor at a community college. I have led several professional developments at the campus and district level as well as written district level curriculum. I have extensive knowledge in, but not limited to: AP Language AP Literature IB and MYP Courses Theory of Knowledge English 1020 Contemporary Literature Speech and much more! Currently I help coach and develop a team of 6-8th grade English teachers, while serving our highest need writing students.
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! I also have high standards and expectations for all students, because I believe they can all reach their full potential.
