Grade(s): Middle School
My education includes a 7-12 language arts teaching degree, as well as a K-12 ESL endorsement. Currently, I am working in the special education field in a western suburb of Minneapolis, both as a teacher for behaviorally challenging middle schoolers and as a paraprofessional. I have also been an adult ESL volunteer/tutor for Hopkins Adult Education for 2 1/2 years (focusing on lower level learners & struggling readers), as well as more recently functioning as a substitute teacher there. I teach piano to six students and am active as a 3rd-6th grade AWANA leader in our church, as well as being the electronic keyboardist on our worship team. Prior to becoming a teacher/tutor/educator, I specialized in the field of desktop publishing/printing for 15 years.
My passion is working with struggling readers, and I am considering pursuing a K-12 Reading License in the near future.
Welcome to my profile! I am an English teacher and librarian at a private high school in Maryland. In 2008, I graduated with a bachelors degree in English Education from Mount Saint Mary's University. This May, I will graduate with a master's degree in School Librarianship from McDaniel College. This past year, I was introduced to the concept of the flipped classroom. It is my goal to flip my classroom one lesson at a time. I plan to use Sophia.org to do this!
Hello all who happen to stumble or are pushed onto this page. I am a sec 1 and 2 teacher near Montreal working with some pretty amazing individuals. We are always creating new ways of learning and inventing awesome challenges for our English classes. From writing original songs to performing videopoetry, building a massive blog presence, to writing true childhood memories and performing them onstage there is truly never a dull moment.
Currently, I work at an Mecosta Osceola Intermediate School District as a data/curriculum coach, World Language Consultant, Title III/ELL coordinator.

I am studying for my Master's Degree in Educational Technology at Grand Valley State University. I am a wife and mother of four and am an Amputee Empowerment Partners certified peer coach in my "free time".
