TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my 6th year of teaching. I began teaching at a school for international students in St Petersburg, Russia, where I taught students from more than a dozen different countries. Over half of my students were ELL/ENL and I have worked hard to bring multiculturalism into my lessons and units. During the four years I was there, I taught grades 6 - 12. Currently, I am teaching 7th - 9th grade English in Illinois.
