I am currently in my tenth year of teaching Literacy at the Middle School level. I have worked with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in both suburban and urban environments. I work with ELL and SpED students, and have been trained in both data-driven instruction and Readers/Writers Workshop.
Creative, Collaborative, and Comprehensive My classroom follows the Workshop model, making it very student-driven. My students take ownership of their learning and spend a lot of time working independently or in small groups. Direct instruction is as limited as possible.

I graduated with a B.S. in Secondary English Education from the University of Central Florida in 2004 and earned my M.S.Ed. in Reading/Writing/Literacy from the University of Pennsylvania in 2014.
I have been married to my incredible husband, who is also a teacher, for almost a year!
