I am currently teaching 8th grade English Language Arts in the Kansas City Suburbs. Before this, I taught ELA and social studies in grades 6, 7, and 10 in an American School in Europe. I also spent time as a substitute teacher while my husband served in the army.
I like to combine traditional teaching styles with modern technologies to adapt to the ever-changing and individual needs of my students.
Yet to be added
I am currently taking graduate courses in technology in schools at the University of Missouri. I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of the Arts in Latin and a Bachelor of Science in Education with emphasis in English in 2007. In addition, I graduated from the Honors College and attained summa cum laude distinction. I am certified to teach English Language Arts in grades 5-12 and speech/theater in grades 9-12 in Missouri. I am certified to teach secondary Latin in the DoD schools system, as well.
I'm a nerd and a mom, and my students keep me young. What I choose to teach reflects this!
