With this unit, I wanted to help my students move from narrative writing to a more personal, inward exploration through words. Memoir writing is great because it engages the writer where he or she is and our pasts are ripe for searching out ideas.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I have taught 5th grade science and language arts, middle school literacy and 7th and 8th grade science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very enthusiastic teacher who tries to incorporate technology and interactive lessons into my plans. I like a lot of hands-on activity and active discussion with my students. I want to inspire and encourage students to be curious, I love creating my own materials that are tailored to the standards that I teach. Working with young people is awesome!
