TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 18 years. During that time I have a wide range of experiences, including Theatre director, English teacher (honors, on-level, co-taught from 7-12th grades) and Speech teacher; as well as being involved in many extracurricular activities. i currently teach AP Language and Composition and English 10. Visit my personal blog at www.carriewisehart.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a strong advocate for sharing power in the classroom. I like my students to feel a strong sense of safety, ownership, and value. Their opinions actually contribute to the atmosphere of the classroom and they are highly motivated, inspired, and involved.
