I am in my third year of teaching, but hope to share my ideas and materials with others, to collaborate on a global scale and make other teacher's lives easier at the same time! My passion is for Language, and I have experience teaching all levels of English Language Development, Middle School English, Spanish 1, and AP Language and Composition.
I am a practitioner in the following teaching styles: Gradual Release of Responsibility, Constructing Meaning, Love & Logic Management, Rick Morris Management, Cooperative Learning Strategies,and GLAD.
The highest honors I have received come from my students who have expressed my positive influence in their lives. I'm ecstatic when I have students who "ditch" their other classes in an attempt to come back to my class - - that is the highest honor I can imagine :)
I have a major in Journalism, as well as Latin American Studies. I have a minor in Spanish, which led me to pursue my BCLAD Credential in Spanish, with my area of classroom emphasis in Single Subject English.
