I've been working in the classroom for nearly twelve years. I started out as a Teaching Assistant to my favourite English teacher, when I was sixteen, and then immediately began working as a substitute teacher while I worked toward my degrees in English-American Literature and Secondary English Education. Once I earned my BA, in 2013, I began teaching full time at the High School level. I took a year off to emmigrate to the United Kingdom, and I am currently working in England at the Middle School level.

Teaching While Catfeinated was started as an excuse to polish up some of my existing lesson plans, and to make a bit of extra money during my move from the US to the UK. I miss the American curriculum a great deal, and use TWC as my excuse to percolate new ideas for literature not on the UK curriculum, and not suitable for the age group I'm currently teaching.
