TEACHING EXPERIENCE

English Language Arts Teacher 28 Years Secondary Educational Technology TOSA 1 Year

MY TEACHING STYLE

I make high-quality resources that are standards based and engaging to all learners. I value rigorous lessons with an "I do, We, do, You do collaboratively, you do independently" model. The majority of my lessons are developed using the Google Apps for education. So, while they are downloaded as powerpoints and microsoft word documents, they can easily be dragged into your Drive and uploaded to your Google classroom.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been an educator for 29 years, and I'm still going strong. This past year, I served as an EdTech TOSA for my district. This year, I will be an "empty-nester," as my daughter is a sophomore studying Poli-Sci and Gov at the University of Puget Sound and my son is off to Hawaii to study Business and play football. I continue to be passionate about learning and growing professionally, and I'm excited to be able to share my resources with you.
