TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in the South Bronx for the last seven years. I have taught 9th grade, 11th grade and 12th grade English.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach with a workshop style. Independent reading is an integral part of my curriculum. I believe in culminating every literary unit with a creative project and a final essay. Students often work in groups. Each unit is planned around essential questions and enduring understandings.
