I have been teaching high school English classes, including AP Language and Composition, for six years.
I believe the key to a successful classroom rests on engaging content and meaningful assignments, and that we best serve our students as facilitators of their learning rather than as distributors of knowledge and worksheets. My mission is to reflect this philosophy in all of my products.
I received the "You Make a Difference" Award in my school; I presented a session on writing strategies at the Illinois New Teacher Collaborative Conference in 2017; I was an AP Exam Reader in 2018
B.A. in English from Eastern Illinois University, 2013, and I am currently working on M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction, which I will finish in 2019!
I live in a small rural town with my husband and our dogs. When I'm not teaching, working on graduate school projects, or working on my TPT store, I enjoy drinking warm beverages and watching Netflix.
