Class experience

US Grade 8 - 10
My undergraduate degree was in Secondary English Education and during that time I designed a poetry unit as a culminating project.  Since then, I’ve taught English in various capacities over the past 25 years, and I’ve been a homeschool mom for the past 14 years.  Poetry continues to be a special interest of mine, and I enjoy coming alongside students to help them creatively express themselves using this medium.
