This is my seventh year teaching. I've taught general and special education, language arts and math, ranging from grades 6-12. I was a member of Teach For America, Atlanta corps 2012, in which I taught high school ELA and special education. I am currently teaching 8th grade special education. I have a Masters degree in Reading and a Bachelor's degree in 7-12 Secondary English Language Arts Education. One of my favorite educational experiences was completing my student teaching in South Africa in 2012.
I believe in providing choice and scaffolded support to teach reading and writing. I think novels are the best and most engaging way to teach reading and promote a lifelong love of learning.

I love YA literature and enjoy creating resources for teachers to bring culturally-response, high-interest lessons into the classroom. Check out My Blog, Follow me on Instagram, and Follow me on Pinterest!
