I have taught middle grades Reading/ELA for nine years (2004-present). My students learning abilities range from Special Needs to Gifted. My students consistently excel in writing and several have won DAR essay, Young GA Authors, and Optimist Oratorical Competitions. I specialize in writing and grammar.
My classroom is a communication highway by which information travels from teacher to student and student to teacher. The activities and lessons that I teach consist of assisting students to use higher-order thinking skills. I inspire my students to be inquirers, problem- solvers, risk-takers, and well-rounded individuals.
