Welcome to my shop - I am so glad you're here! I have taught for fifteen years in public school middle & high, part-time college courses, private high school, Sunday school, and was a part-time volunteer librarian. I have a degree in Humanities, English, Education, and Paralegal Studies and earned my master's degree in education. I have a Rank One in teaching. Teaching & Motivating Teens Pinterest Find my blog at: http://mirandafjordan.blogspot.com/


My specialty is engaging and motivating teens - building lessons that make them want to come to school, enjoy being part of our positive, dynamic environment, question whether there is even a box to think out of, build upon their learning, and - most importantly - guiding each and every student to see the gifts that lie within themselves. Every child is gifted in their own distinct way. I like to set the stage for them to realize their gifts, develop them, and to take pride in their accomplishments and in themselves. Differentiation.
