TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my career at the high school level, teaching 11th Grade American Literature. Though my high school students were wonderful, when I had the opportunity to teach 7th Grade I really fell in love with what I had decided was going to be my life long career. The journey I have had in middle school has been exciting, interesting, humorous and unforgettable. I am currently teaching 6th and 7th grade English language arts but recently taught 8th grade as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My focus for my students is both data driven and engagement driven. I have a number of "Focus" lessons that incorporate brain research in regards to improving retention rates in adolescent students. These lessons include direct instruction with student interaction as well as independent practice. I also try to include fun, innovate, student driven activities that keeps class our class moving and kids involved in their own education.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was currently asked to be on the District Site and Learning Team. I am part of a select group partnered with administrators from the district who observe and provide feedback to our teachers throughout the district.
