TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been in education for the past decade, tutoring students while pursuing my degree in English and later teaching students English Language Arts while pursuing my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction, and my Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I have taught creative writing, group communications, English 1, Language Seminar, language arts college prep, and English 2 in 9th and 10th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style focuses on students using basic concepts like graphic organizers to help them lay a foundation for the enduring understandings they need to master state standards and creative concepts like mock trials and TikTok summaries to boost engagement and critical thinking. I love to incorporate collaborative learning, even in a digital format, and to let students get creative and interdisciplinary with how they demonstrate their learning.
