I have been a teacher for 13 years. Although my focus has been language arts, I have taught U.S. History and philosophy at the high school level. I began teaching high school English in 2003, and switched to the middle school level in 2012.
I believe in giving students the opportunity to explore literature independently, to foster class discussions in which I do not provide all the answers. I want students to discover what they think, and learn to communicate their thoughts effectively through speaking and writing. That said, my classroom is very structured, my expectations are high, and students know the rules and procedures that keep our class running smoothly.
I have been recognized as highly effective every year in my career.
