I've been teaching since 2005. In that time, I've taught 6th, 7th, 8th, and 10th grade English. I'm currently teaching 10th grade English!
A combination old school and new school: I'm constantly trying to "mix it up" to keep my classroom fresh and exciting for my students! A good day is a day when I set an activity in motion, and the students work collaboratively to complete it!

I'm a teacher-mom who is obsessed with Harry Potter, enjoys reading, spending time with my family, and making my classroom a room my students actually want to spend time in. :D
