I have a BA in American Studies and a Masters in Humanities. I have been teaching extensively for 6 years, grades 4-8, with special focus on ELA, Writing, Literature, History of any sort (US, World, etc.) and Algebra. I take my previous career as a coach and fitness with kids, incorporated with my teaching strategies, and the goal is to create a safe, fun, yet motivating atmosphere. The goals and expectations are always high, but I take pride in knowing each student individually. I am always thinking and reflecting on different strategies to use to help best achieve your goal!!
