I am in my 8th year of teaching but my 1st year in middle school! For the past 7 years I have taught 5th grade and this year I am making the big jump to 6th grade ELA. Working in a school where the majority of my students are ESL has been a blessing as it has really made me think out of the box.
I am a very laid back teacher, it's not unusual to find my students on the floor up front while I teach. I believe that each child has there own way to learn and it's my job to find that and make it work for them. I teach in an IB school and that can be a challenge in a Title 1 school in the data driven educational climate we live in but I find it a challenge I am willing to take head on!
Nominated for the Michigan Association of Public School Academies teacher of the year twice.
