TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I completed my 5th year of teaching High School "English Language Arts" in New York City, and have served as Chair of the English Department the past two years. My students read at different levels, from 1st grade to post high school, some have learning disabilities as identified in their Individual Education Plans (IEPs), and some are English Language Learners (ELLs), so all my work is modified and differentiated so that the content is both accessible and rigorous to them all.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to employ 21st century skills in the classroom, which includes research, technology, and collaborative projects/presentations. In my curriculum and lesson planning, I am mindful of my scholars' differing learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. All of my lessons are differentiated to reach struggling, average, and advanced learners in each class.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nominated for Big Apple Teacher of the Year in 2013-2014.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA in English Teaching - Cal State @ Northridge, MA in Education - Brooklyn College, and MA in Educational Leadership - George Washington University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My planning partner is my husband, a licensed Special Education - Bilingual teacher. Together we build lesson, unit, and curriculum plans that not only engage students, but make them better readers, writers, and scholars. I'm originally from Los Angeles, but have called NYC home for the past eight years, each year working in the Dept. of Education.
