TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 5th year teaching! I have taught 10th grade English, 10th grade English Language Lab (remedial English), 11th grade American Studies, Film Literature, Speech, and Creative Writing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am SUPER organized. To a fault, some might say. I try to create lessons that are engaging and get the students moving. If I can get the kids to laugh at least once during a period, I'm happy!
