I have been teaching for 22 years. I have spent most of my career teaching 7th grade Language Arts, Reading, Highly Capable and Gifted, 8th grade Leadership and Drama. I am currently embarking on a new adventure teaching High School English and Drama.
I believe it is paramount that educators teach students with tomorrow in mind. We need to integrate technology into our curriculum while maintaining a focus on high standards. The classroom should also be a fun experience for both students and teachers.
