TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught fifth grade reading, writing, and social studies for the past seven years. I now teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade history and literature.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is very hands on. I prefer to facilitate my students learning and try to create many opportunities for discussion, interactive learning, and simulations to help bring social studies alive!
