I have been teaching for ten years in a high poverty school district with many English language learners. I have taught 7th and 8th graders in English Language Arts, Reading Support, AVID, Language Arts Support, Creative Writing, and Social Studies.
Every day I strive to share my passion for literature with my students. My classes have an emphasis on collaboration and critical thinking.
I received my National Boards certificate in Secondary English Language Arts in 2009.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from San Francisco State University and a Master of Arts degree in Teaching from Seattle Pacific University. I have been trained in AVID, ELL strategies, standards based grading, Academic 3D, argument writing, teaching students in poverty, reading and writing strategies for adolescent learners.
I love reading and vegetables! I am new to Teachers Pay Teachers so be sure to check for more!
