TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught English 9 / Freshman English for 3 years at a Title 1 charter school in South Los Angeles. Before that, I student taught 6th and 10th grade English at a pilot community school in our local district. I also serve as the English Department Chair at my school and facilitate English interdepartmental vertical planning, collaboration and instructional development with English teachers, and model and develop department-wide strategies for differentiated instruction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I consider my instruction to be theory and Common Core standards-based. My personal teaching strategies are those that encourage equity and access for all students with a focus on providing additional, optional scaffolds for English learners and students with special needs while also extending the learning of the advanced student. I enjoy making my curriculum rigorous and challenge for every student with fun and engaging activities that are designed to challenge students wherever they are at. My teaching centers around structure, differentiation through student choice and using formative assessments -- students are often doing multiple activities at once in my room to meet everyone's immediate needs. I use a lot of station, movement, and structured activities, systems and procedures. I focus on students being the leaders and facilitators of their learning and taking ownership and responsibility over their understanding, literacy, and writing development.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was a conference lecturer at The National Writing Project: With Different Eyes conference at UCLA in November 2012. I taught a workshop entitled “Ninth Graders Tackle Complex Texts” and facilitated conversation with new and seasoned educators around scaffolding and differentiating instruction and assessments.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a Master’s in Education from the University of California Los Angeles (June 2012), and received a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and Global and Urban Ministries from Seattle Pacific University (June 2009). I also hold an AP English Literature and Composition certification from The College Board (2013).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am originally from Northwest Washington State -- there will always be a little bit of Seattle running through my veins! During college, I lived, studied, and taught English throughout Central America and developed a passion for English literacy and education. After I graduated, I worked for a year as a writer and found that I missed interacting with students. Realizing that I belonged in the classroom, I pursued credentials in English Language Arts and Bilingual Education. My students are my greatest joy in life. When I’m not teaching, I spend my time finding amazing coffee shops, running around outdoors, and reading.
