I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education. I took additional classes in Journalism and ELL. While in college, I tutored high school students after school for a college program. I was fortunate enough to complete my student teaching in Bamberg, Germany working on the army base teaching 7th, 8th and 10th grade Language Arts. After I finished my student teaching, I came back to my home state of Arizona and began teaching in the west Phoenix area. I have been teaching at my current school for three years. I taught 8th grade my first year and this is my second year of teaching 7th grade Language Arts. I really enjoy working with all the quirkiness that comes with middle school. I have been reading apprenticeship trained, which focuses on students discovering the answers through annotation of a text and meta-cognition. This year, my school has adopted the Engage New York curriculum, so I am familiar with some of the struggles that arise from the new common core. I am very familiar with writing a successful piece of writing through my school curriculum and this year we are working on incorporating ideas from a text into writing. Currently, I am training to run a marathon with one of my fellow Teachers in February. I also enjoy relaxing with a good book or movie, crafting ideas from Pinterest, and traveling.
