Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature and a Master's Degree in Special Education. I have two New York State certifications in English Language Arts and Special Education. I have been teaching in the classroom for over ten years. As a Special Education (Generalist) teacher, I have co-taught in Social Studies classrooms so I am knowledgeable on historical concepts regarding the Yellow Fever Pandemic and topics regarding terrorism in the Middle East. During that time, I have taught a high population of refugee students so I am familiar with the sensitive topics that come up when reading the text "I Am Malala" as well as "Stolen Voices". In the event that students become upset during discussions of ethnicity and race, I will immediately reach out to parents to inform of any emotionally heightened discussions that took place during live classroom meetings. 
The novel- 'Stolen Voices'- describes the experiences of young people during war time through the century. As a teacher who taught students from areas of conflict, I am experienced in reading texts that discuss traumatic events. In the event that students become upset at the content of the novels I will alert parents to their learner's emotional status. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
