TEACHING EXPERIENCE

National Board Certified in English Language Arts/Adolescence and Young Adulthood, I have been teaching for 20 years. I've taught diverse English classes in grades 6 -12 and English electives including Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition, Creative Writing, and Journalism. In addition to teaching full-time at a public high school, I have also taught English 101 at the local community college.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I want my students to be critical thinkers, readers, and writers so they can confidently face the many challenges in our complex society. To help students achieve this goal, I try to make learning relevant and fun, taking into consideration each student's strengths and needs. Many of my lessons feature cooperative learning, differentiation, and address the demands of the Common Core State Standards. Please visit my Facebook page if you would like to get tips for your classroom.
