Middle School Lang. Arts Teacher, Ed Tech Lead, Dept. Chair,
MEd. in Digital Educational Leadership
Google Certified Educator
I am a middle school educator, who focuses on designing lessons that are both dynamic and molded to the needs of the classroom. My students are taught to craft well-organized essays, analyze the literary elements of a work of fiction, evaluate the relevancy and accuracy of a text, and read with a sophisticated, critical eye. I have continued to work on the implementation of technology that maximizes student interest and incorporates 21st century skills.
Over the course of my teaching career, I have accepted departmental and committee chairmanships, guided school improvement plans that worked to exceed school-wide student achievement goals in reading and writing, and organized numerous school-wide reading initiatives. I put emphasis on collaborating with colleagues to commonly align curriculum and assessments across grade levels and content areas.
I recently earned a masters degree in Digital Education Leadership from Seattle Pacific University. I seek to expose myself to cutting-edge scholarship in this field and prepare myself academically for the challenge of implementing digital learning in the global age.
