I have been teaching in Maryland and West Virginia for nine years. In those years, I have taught a diverse selection of students, including English Language Learners, Special Education, and Honors, Advanced Placement, and Academy (top 10% of a class) students, I have also taught many types of classes: ELA 9-12 (on-grade and honors), AP Literature, Read 180, Creative Writing, Journalism, Newspaper, Broadcasting, and Yearbook. Somewhere in the midst of those classes, I was able to attain National Board certification.
I teach less than I monitor and facilitate. I believe students can and do teach one another, often better than we can teach them. Therefore, many of the assignments in my store are based around student discovery, interaction, and application. This type of instruction is highly conducive to the 21st century skills advocated in the Common Core State Standards.
National Board Certification
I have a bachelor's degree in English Education from Concord University.
