TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching is my passion! For 15 years, I have taught English in suburban and urban schools in Pennsylvania. Every day, I am excited by the chance to help students build bridges in their learning. I look forward to sharing my journey with you!

MY TEACHING STYLE

"Education is all a matter of building bridges." Ralph Ellison Bridging lessons from the Common Core to real life is my focus. In my classes, I encourage communities of learners to master core concepts and to become intrinsically-motivated through differentiated instruction.
