TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Six years of teaching English 1, 2, 4 (ninth, tenth, and twelfth grade English), Creative Writing, reading intervention classes, and Senior Seminar. Currently a Middle School Literacy Specialist.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that you must bring the learning to the student rather than expect the student to always come to the learning. In an attempt to bring the learning to my students, my store is full of resources to differentiate instruction: stations, menus, choice boards, etc.
