TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for the last twenty-four years and have spent the majority of my career in grades 6th-8th. I have some high school and elementary experience as well. I am a certified C.R.I.S.S. trainer, a Florida Reading Initiative trainer, and have experience teaching technology workshops for teachers as well as students. I am currently serving as a library media specialist in a middle school and I teach one 8th grade Advanced ELA class and two 8th Grade ELA class with mostly struggling readers. I am also responsible for helping failing students with credit recovery. I use my materials with these classes and I share with others at my school to help teachers in all subject areas improve their lessons.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a firm believer in "Edutainment" and work hard to keep learning fun and meaningful. I love technology and incorporating it into my lessons.
