I have seventeen years teaching experience in Language Arts, Social Studies from grades 8 to 12 and Music from K to 12. Average number of students is approximately 150 high schoolers per year, with reading and writing abilities in the elementary to post-secondary range in every class.
My style of teaching is open, engaging, and usually student-led. I am driven by the curiosity of young people about the world around them.
I am honored to be married to a caring husband, mother to two curious and cute toddlers, and owner of a curmudgeonly English bulldog.
