I have been teaching students in grades 5-8 in inner-city schools for 6 years now. My favorite class to teach is Language Arts! I have a master's degree in literacy education and my passion is teaching creative writing :)
I love to make learning as relevant to students as possible. I draw in their real-world experiences, passions, and talents to create lessons that are engaging and personal. I frequently use technology in the classroom and I reach a wide variety of learning styles by varying my instructional techniques. I believe that challenging each student to reach their full potential is my mission as a teacher.
