TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm entering my fifth year of teaching middle school Language Arts. I have floated between 5th-8th grades, and have taught a variety of subject, yet my emphasis is on language arts and history. I am in the process of getting my masters degree as a Reading Specialist, so my novel units are utilizing best practice in the field today. I'm also in the process of editing many of my early uploads in order to align them to CCSS, and change some questions to further develop them in the way of best practice reading instruction and critical thinking,
