TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught anything from 4th-11th grade English Language Arts for the past ten years. However, the majority of my experience and expertise lies on the middle and high school levels. I have also taught anywhere from lower performing students up to AP level and found that many students in the better performing groups still benefit from intervention strategies for the lower performing groups.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In the classroom, I take on a very creative, tactile approach with lots of project and research-based assignments to break the monotony of the types of writing that needs to get addressed for the state assessment and college entrance exams. I also make it a point to read, dissect, and evaluate one class novel aside from independent reading per semester.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

At my current school district I received a 5-year service award. Aside from that, I have received no other formal honor or award. However, I've had the privilege of being the UIL coordinator at my school for the last couple years and running the Spelling Bee at my previous district.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I studied and received my bachelor's degree at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. There I majored in English Literature and minored in Photography. After teaching for a while and gaining more experience in my craft, I went to graduate school at University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley where I received my M.Ed. in Reading and Literacy.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I grew and up lived in the Rio Grande Valley (the utmost southern part of Texas) most of my life. I am a huge fan of some of the classics and modern adaptations - I especially enjoy reading a good dystopian novel.
