I have taught English/Language Arts for middle school students, grades 6-8, for sixteen years, spending most of my career teaching a split schedule of at-risk readers and gifted and talented students. I currently teach 7th grade.
My classroom style is a reader's-writer's workshop with flavors of Linda Rief, Nancie Atwell, ABYDOS (formerly the New Jersey Writing Project), Kelly Gallagher and Jeff Anderson.
