I spent 11 1/2 years as a middle and high school band director, working with grades 4-12. I entered the English classroom eight years ago and have taught grades 9-12. I have also been the only certified ESOL teacher on my campus for the last four years.
I use a variety of methods. I try to incorporate pop culture, hands on activities, individual and group work, as well as addressing various learning styles and differentiation for student ability levels and interests.
