I've been teaching high school English for the past 9 years, working with both college prep level students and special education students. My main focus is with my struggling readers, working to enhance their love for reading and their comprehension skills through varied text styles, writing strategies, and speaking skills.
I am a true believer in the whole child approach to learning. Since many of my students face different challenges, I work to engage multiple learning styles in each lesson. This often requires differentiated instruction throughout a single lesson, integrating technology, and small-to-whole-to-independent teaching structures..

I'm a twin mama and cop wife who loves what I do. I love the community feel of teaching, both in my own district and throughout the great big inter-world. Looking forward to growing and expanding my classroom and helping you do the same!
