I am a forward-thinking English teacher with experience offering students exciting and meaningful lessons in grammar, reading, and writing. As an educator I believe in leading by example and showing students the ways in which the skills they learn in my classroom will translate to their futures. While I strive for all students to achieve mastery of standards, my hope is for all students to feel that they’ve gained confidence in their own abilities. To make this happen, I am committed to maintaining my aptitude in technology, supporting students’ social-emotional development, and designing academic opportunities for all types of learners.
