TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! My students call me Ms. D, I've been teaching English Language Arts for the past 4 years. I have taught grades 6-11 in a variety of different schools, ranging from Middle school ELA in charter schools to Diploma Program Language and Literature (English) at an IB High School. My students are my greatest inspiration, and I'm always striving to create more engaging and challenging activities and assignments. I want to share what I create because I firmly believe that ALL students deserve access to relevant and meaningful instruction! Check me out on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/thanksmsd/
