TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught almost every grade k-8. I have also acted as a mentor teacher, literacy coach, after-school program coordinator, and am currently a common core instructional coach while teaching 6th grade ELA, World History, and Media Literacy.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am constantly pursuing new ways to update and upgrade my teaching methods to continue to meet the ever changing needs of the diverse population of students that I work with. I am passionate about student engagement, mindfulness, and collaboration. I am a facilitator of meaningful student interaction and a fan of student driven, project based learning.
