TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 12th year teaching middle school. I taught both ELA and math in 6th grade for 10 years and have been teaching ELA in 7th grade for the last two years. Middle schoolers are totally my niche!!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student-centered all the way!!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nothing formal... but my students seem to love me! Does that count?!?

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor's degree in Education Psychology and a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. Additionally, I have a Master's degree in Language Arts Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married to a teacher and together we have four, beautiful children.
