TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught reading intervention for two years in the middle school. Now, I am an English II teacher. I enjoy working on interesting curriculum that maximizes time, efficiency, and engagement.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I focus primarily on the needs of individual students by working in small groups and tracking each student's data. I enjoy connecting with students and, in turn, using what I have learned about them and incorporating that into my lessons and assignments.
