TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching in an ELA classroom for 9 years. I focus on writing, reading, vocabulary, grammar, and will be taking on a health and life skills unit this coming school year as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to be engaging, energetic, and excited about the lessons I teach, and I hope that what we do in my classroom helps spark a passion for learning within my students. I try to think outside the box, I love incorporating new ideas, styles, and techniques, and I find that I reflect upon and revise my lessons constantly.
