I have been teaching in a public school district for 10 years. I taught grades 2-5 Basic Skills Reading and Math for the first 3 years of my career, and for the last 7 years I have taught 8th grade English Language Arts to 130 students each year. I love teaching Middle School and I hope my materials can help you instill a love of reading and writing in your students.
I believe that every child is capable of not only learning, but learning to enjoy learning. It is my goal to have every student in my classroom enjoy coming to ELA class everyday. I hope to foster a love and appreciation of reading and writing in my students. I believe the best way to do accomplish this is by making the students understand the importance of what they are learning, get involved in their own learning, and to hold them to a higher standard. I believe that this will foster life-long learners.
