I am a Texas teacher, who has taught for ELA for 15 years. I have taught all grades 5-12, and not only have I taught 5th grade elementary curriculum (current position), but have taught STAAR prep courses, along with AP Literature and Composition classes.
My teaching style revolves around the idea of collaborative group work and technology integration. I allow my students to be leaders, while I can facilitate the learning. I pride myself on coming up with new innovative ways to get my students excited about the learning, so then I can in turn learn from them!
