Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
I am certified in both English Language Arts and Special Education- Generalist for grades 7-12. I have over ten years experience teaching these texts to high school students and assisting learners with their core Social Studies lessons. I have taught for over ten years in an urban environment so I have extensive experience teaching texts that touch on racial issues when teaching to students of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. If an issue should arise in the class I will privately reach out to parents to discuss their learner's feelings on sensitive racial issues. 
In college, I took several classes on African American literature as well as courses that focused on literature with the subject of race relations in America. I also took courses on criticisms of African colonialism and the effects imperialistic ideas still have on many African countries today. I personally have two mixed race children, so discussions of race and ethnicity in American society today is something that I speak on in my home regularly. 
This course will read novels that are commonly read in American high schools. I censor the passages read in class for any offensive language.
