TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught students of all ages, from adults to babies, about my love of reading and writing. I've worked in literacy since 2006, when I first joined AmeriCorps. I am currently an English and ESL teacher at a private school in the Pittsburgh area, teach an English conversation group at my local library, and teach ESL at the local community college.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Project-based, hands-on learning, plus writing, writing, writing with a goal of understanding, interpreting, analyzing and applying literature to everyday life!
