I have been teaching high school English for over a decade. Composition has become my specialty, and I have taught AP Language and Composition for the last five years. I also teach 9th grade English, and Honors 9th grade as well. In my entire experience, from student teaching to the present, I have taught grades 7-12. I was the journalism and publications teacher for five years, and have co-taught with special ed teachers for years.
If you ask my students to describe my style, the first word they will say is "ENTHUSIASTIC!" I am incredibly passionate about teaching and learning. I love writing and reading, and my style is a mix of old-school excellence and new-school enthusiasm!
I have my degree in Secondary Education, with a major in English and a minor in Psychology.
In addition to my 162 kiddos I teach every day, I have two children at home: my twin boys :)
