Class Experience

I have over 20 years of ELA teaching experience. I have spent the majority of my career preparing kids for the state writing assessments in Texas. I am also a professional and published writer myself. My passion for writing rubs off on my students, putting even the most reluctant writers at ease. I am able to share fun, logical elaboration methods that kids find easy to implement into their own writing. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
