TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught high school ELA and K-12 ESL for 9 years. I love helping students fall in love with reading and learning in general. My strengths include curriculum development, developing analytical and close reading skills, writing instruction, vocabulary development, and projects that both instruct and assess.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that students need to be at the forefront of their learning, engaging with texts, tasks, and one another. Being organized and thoughtful at the start of a year or unit can help me front load the teacher preparation, so I can step out of the way and let students take the lead!
