TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching English for nine years and have taught 7-12 grades. Prior to teaching, I worked as a college AVID tutor and a substitute teacher. My experience in education covers two states, six school districts, and nine schools. I have been worked in every type of school setting. I know all the challenges teachers face trying to accomplish their goals. That is why I love this website. It is the best practice, creativity mecca! It is the PD I think all teachers need and never get.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students can perform at a high level with the right support and scaffolding. I actually teach twelfth grade the same way as I teach seventh grade. I believe in preparing kids for what they are going to need to know at the higher level. My seventh graders read complex texts and write MLA formatted essays. My roommate teaches English at the junior college level and sometimes my seventh graders essays look better than the essays she receives. My eighth graders from last year have been visiting, and I have heard ninth grade English is easy multiple times. That means I have done my job.
