I have taught for 8 years in the Mississippi Delta. I have taught all levels of high school English, from 9th grade to AP Literature and AP Language.
My teaching style is straightforward with no frills; my classroom is text-centered and student-centered. The resources I design are very simple for a teacher to implement (other teachers have used them as sub plans!) but require lots of reading, writing, and thinking from students. My students generally come to me reading and writing well below grade level but have responded well to analyzing high-level texts with the scaffolding these resources provide.
