TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts and World History for the past eleven years in a rural town in Washington State. I have a double Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and Elementary Education as well as my Master's in K-12 Reading and Literacy. Much of my experience is with students of poverty and who are migrant and second language learners.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer a classroom that is heavily focused on student discourse and activity. I try to create lessons that appeal to different learning styles and personalities while still getting content knowledge across. I also enjoy of focusing on concepts that my students find intriguing and integrating that into my language arts classes - for example, I use the Holocaust as a jumping off point for historical fiction, 9/11 for creating fictional narratives, and bullying for writing research papers and building websites.
