Class Experience

Hello! My name is Melanie Howell, and I have been an independent school teacher for twenty-five years. I am the author of Will's Ride, a lovely picture book about a boy and his adaptive bike. I enjoy hosting a Facebook page for teachers called Teaching Matters and a Youtube channel called The Teacher's Playbook.

 Creating a dynamic learning environment where students feel safe and supported is the first essential element to my teaching style. I meet each student at their level, providing academic support, redirection, and genuine praise. My most recent experience includes teaching a novel-based approach to literature, creative writing, essay writing, vocabulary instruction, and study skills. I have Orton-Gillingham and HillRAP training in reading instruction. 

My objective is to maximize each learners potential. I am a positive and patient teacher who loves to share my passion for literacy with students. 

I will email each learner a handout to be printed out for class. In addition to the handout, learners will need a box of colored pencils or crayons.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
