I teach high school English. I have experience with many different levels of students, from special education and ESL to honors and gifted.


I like to think of teaching high school English as one daring and amazing adventure. Just like how everyday is different, every student is different as well. I like to engage and motivate my students through my excitement and passion for the English language arts.
