I have been an English teacher for ten years. For the past nine, I have taught tenth graders, but I also have experience with 8th grade students. I am comfortable handling reading, writing, and literature at all grade levels, and I have special experience with the NYS Regents examination (11th grade). I am also comfortable with the 8th grade ELA exams. I think students would describe me as quirky, fun, and as a teacher who clearly loves her content area. I hope that my interest in English literature and writing is evident in my teaching and helps student motivation as well.
