I have devoted six years of my life teaching grades six through eight in inclusion, intervention, honors, and regular English Language Arts classes. Not only have I witnessed the growth of my students, but I have grown both personally and professionally in the process. During this time-frame, I have served my school as the English Department Head and Reading Specialist. It gives me great pleasure to now serve you and your students.
I am interested in how creativity can develop world-class thinkers. I spend a great degree of time researching how to develop students who are autodidacts. I develop resources that reflect real-world application, infuse multi-disciplinary learning processes, and engage students in creating projects for exploration of language.
My students grow because I must grow.
I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Middle Level Education (a concentration in English Language Arts).
I spent most of my young years forcing my little sisters to play school with me. They would grudgingly comply to avoid my repeated requests for school time. My oldest sister and I would teach our subjects to our little sisters, teddy bears, and whomever would listen. I suppose this was the beginning of a beautiful career. I had some amazing days during those summers (memories that will never be forgotten). In this teaching world, I still continue those amazing days. My sisters, well, they still confess their favorite part of school was the Kool-aid they received during lunchtime.
