TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Years ago I exchanged a career in writing and proofreading for one in education and have been teaching ever since. I've spent more than a decade teaching students of all modalities and English-language ability. Most of my experience has been teaching energetic second- and third-graders. For the past year and a half I have combined my love of teaching with my love of writing and creating. As such, I have worked as a freelance writer and consultant for various education publishers, including Teacher Created Materials, School Specialty, and ETS.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe learning is an adventure and try to reflect that in my teaching. It's never the same lesson twice!
