I've been teaching nine years in public middle and high school. I also private tutor in SAT/ACT test prep, writing, and reading comprehension and work at a private academy on the weekends and in the summer. I love working with students and honoring their stories!

I haven't been out of the school environment (either as a student or educator) for more than 6 months since I was in Pre-K (true story). I'm 35 years old, and my students think that's hilarious!
Both of my parents are teachers. My brother is a teacher. I'm a teacher . . . I guess you could say we're a teacher mafia family! I work hard to produce awesome, usable curriculum in our changing world that I'd like to see my own two middle school boys exposed to. Teaching is one of my many passions, so thanks for letting me share it with you!
