Passionate English teacher adept in facilitating powerful learning experiences that challenge students to lead with curiosity and creativity

Methodology

I base my classes on the specific needs of each person, utilizing current best-practices and differentiating instruction as needed. I am versatile and flexible, and I love learning ways that I can best be of service to each of my students. I take pride in providing real-world connections that allow students to see how their curriculum relates to skills and concepts we see every day.

Background

I am a licensed English teacher for grades 5-12, with over four years of experience teaching, tutoring, and providing writing workshops for those looking to expand their mastery and understanding of the subject. I graduated with a BA in English from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2019, and have since worked with students of all ages to meet an array of requirements.
