I spent 14 years as a "Highly Effective" English teacher in a small school district in the Midwest teaching Reading and English, 10th grade English (including Honors), 12th grade English, and AP Literature and Composition. As an educator, I designed, developed, and implemented department's standards-based grading scales as well as online portfolio requirements. Currently serving as Senior Instructional Technology Specialist and adjunct instructor for local community college.
Highly organized curriculum units centered around student inquiry and project-based learning.
"Highly Effective" teacher 6 times since 2011.
BA from Kalamazoo College (Major: English; Minor: History; Concentration: Education) MA from Michigan State University in Educational Technology
My favorite part of teaching was the creation of activities, units, and experiential opportunities that were put together with a level of professional care any educator could take them and make them their own. Now you can!
