TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been discovering the amazing mysteries and joys of language arts with 10th and 12th grade students in West Chicago for the past five years. Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl playing school in my basement.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style would best be described as "discovery in the making". I approach each day with my students with an open mind and a hope to get side tracked into great, authentic discussion about literature, writing, and the world we live in. To learn more about my classroom, visit my blog! http://mudandink.blogspot.com/
