I believe that well crafted lessons and activities that engage students are an art form.I have been teaching for 8 years, mostly at the middle school level. I am a teacher leader in the Oregon Writing Project and recently received a graduate certificate in the Teaching of Writing from the OWP. My focus teaching areas are Reading, Writing, Social Studies, and Drama. I also love to integrate Language Arts and Science.
I am an educational facilitator who believes in keeping students active and engaged.
