TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Faculty, The Webb Schools Faculty, The American College of Sofia Writer: Independent School Magazine, readwritethink.org, English Journal, Independent Teacher Online, NCTE Classroom Notes Plus, NAIS Cool Books Project, We Are Teachers, Follett Contributor: Cult of Pedagogy Podcast Guest: Cult of Pedagogy, The Cornerstone for Teachers

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use creative, artistic, differentiated pedagogies. I constantly promote free-choice reading, use interdisciplinary journal prompts and help students explore different forms of creative writing. I like a variety of discussion forms like literature circles and fishbowl discussions, but particularly focus on developing the group dynamics required for round-table discussions.
