I have nine years of teaching experience; although the majority of those years have been spent in grades 7-12, I have also taught first-year writing at the college level.

My style is collaborative and student-centered, with a mix of traditional thrown in! I plan and teach classes in a co-taught setting, so much of my planning takes into consideration students with special needs, thanks to the help of my special education certified co-teacher!
