I have taught secondary English, psychology, and social-emotional learning since 2013, working in California, Florida, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Japan. I've taught in public and charter schools, with a special education co-teacher and a para-educator. I've also taught general education, honors, and International Baccalaureate level classes. Currently, I'm teaching virtually and creating resources for other teachers, focusing on activities that foster critical thinking and collaboration in their classrooms and online.
My favorite subjects to teach are psychology and English, because the curriculum of both subjects allows for infinite connections to students' lives, allowing them to learn deeply about themselves as well. My teaching style is student centered and involves students learning actively through projects and collaborative assignments that often spread outside of the four walls of our classroom and out into the community. I'm also a huge psych nerd, and insert nerdy psych jokes and puns into my teaching whenever possible!
