TEACHING EXPERIENCE

14 years in the classroom, but not all at the same time. Took 5 years off in the "middle" to stay home with my triplets. Currently teaching Freshman English (Pre- AP and On-Level) and loving every moment of it! English Department Chair: presently Data Tracking, CFA's, Formative Assessments, etc. Assistant Principal at my former school. Curriculum Head K-12 at my former school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a Journalism degree, in addition to my Education degree, so my lessons are heavy in "writer-based" instruction. My students are placed in 6 groups of 6 and they participate in a wide variety of group lessons. I try to incorporate as much hands-on learning as possible. I love to try new ideas and researching curriculum is a habit of mine!
