TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught freshmen, sophomores, and seniors in several schools. I student taught in a small town in Oklahoma, taught for three years at Ponca City High School, and am currently teaching at Arkansas City High School.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very informal teacher that prefers to connect the things we study in class to real-life interests and events. You will see this reflected in my Alice unit in which we were able to effectively incorporate video games in the ELA classroom. Most of my documents that are uploaded to TPT will be easily transferred to Google Docs or are based on Google software.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. in English Education from Northwestern Oklahoma State University, 2011. Semester abroad at Swansea University, Wales, UK, 2012.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Anything I can do to work video games into the literary canon is a worthwhile venture, in my opinion.
