Working in education since 2003 - textbook editor, curriculum development/design, public school teacher (10th grade English), private school teacher (middle school writing specialist). Dual secondary certifications in English and Social Studies.
Relaxed; nothing fussy or over complicated. I LOVE project based learning for ALL levels!
Award of Teaching Excellence from CTC High School. The best moment that I experience with an individual student is when I see the "light bulb moment"... when everything I have poured in them all comes together and makes sense. It's what a teacher lives for. Being a teacher-author on Teachers Pay Teachers amongst the BEST teachers in the country has been such a rewarding experience. The cherry on the top has been seeing my store listed in the Top 100 sellers for Middle School frequently!
