I'm a high school English teacher who has taught for twenty years! I've worked with students in grades 9-12, on both the college preparatory and honors levels. I'm also a tutor, with a specialty in college essay assistance.
I like to infuse creative projects into my classroom, such as hosting writing challenges for my students or staging Shakespeare performances. At the heart of everything is discussion--I am discussion-to-practice-to-discussion based. I respect my students and enjoy the reciprocity of that feeling. I also have a love of annotations, Post-its, and index cards! There's nothing a small Post-it note or index card can't help you achieve in the classroom, whether it's a six-word story, and exit slip, or a visual aid. A vibrant classroom filled with color and student work cultivates a creative mindset.
Honored for eight consecutive years as an influential teacher for the National Honors Society; Student Government Adviser for fourteen years and counting! Yet the best reward is my students saying I am their favorite teacher :)
B.A in English Language and Literature; Masters courses with a concentration in Writing; Secondary Education certification in English for grades 6-12.
