5 years of teaching experience and 3 additional years in education. My focus has been on learning best research practices to teach struggling writers how to be college-ready writers. The assignments are intended to use all English Skills: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking.
I specialize in teaching struggling writers how to write. I spend quite a bit of time preparing students to use reading strategies and in-depth discussion questions through a version of the UBD unit writing method.

I am a former Marine and don't like to waste time. Each lesson I create has focus and a strategy that students can learn to replicate on their own. I teach strategies and not just mindless worksheets. I'd love to know if you like these lessons as I am able to create more of these for you to use.
