I have taught middle and high school English Language Arts for 17 years. I have taught English literature and composition to advanced students preparing for private high schools with even higher aspirations of attending Ivy League schools. I have taught at all grade levels from grades 4 through 12. I have tutored adult college students in these areas as well. I have taught students with minimal English and seventh-grade students who read at first-grade level. I have achieved great success while completing courses in my doctoral program. I have a minor in Geography and gave school tours at a Local Nature Center. I love nature and my happiest moments are spent in the woods. As a child I grew up walking through the trails at my grandparents house and loved to see the flowers bloom and change as the seasons changed throughout the year. I am an avid but terrible gardener. I thoroughly enjoy plants and nature and want to share my enthusiasm for the natural world with students through the lens of reading and exploration.
I teach classes for grades 2-12 for Neurodivergent and Traditional Students. I utilize numerous strategies to teach learners of all backgrounds and abilities. I teach a wide array of students with unique learning needs.
