TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a high school English teacher with 15 years teaching experience. I use pop culture, technology, and rigorous reading and writing strategies to ensure students think creatively and critically about all kinds of texts and the world beyond them too. At the heart of it all though is a desire for students to be curious and to follow that curiosity even if it’s down a rabbit hole of wikipedia clicks!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Arts in English as well as my Bachelor of Education with a focus on students at-risk. I was a PhD Candidate in English and Film Studies before I took a (long) hiatus to focus on the classroom and raising my family.
