I have 16 years of classroom teaching experience in literacy, literature, and social studies working with all grade levels and abilities of students.
My approach is hands-on, minds-on Project-Based Learning.
I was nominated as teacher of the year for my school, district, and was one of the top four charter school teachers of the year for the state of North Carolina in 2017. I am a National Boards certified teacher and have published short stories and poetry in literary journals.
