Eighth Grade / Language Arts
I have taught middle school here at MCS for several years and I love it! I love teenagers and almost teenagers! This is such a hard time of life for students, if I can help them get through the middle school years successfully then I have reached my loftiest goal. They actually get my jokes and humor me when I want them to hang out with me at lunch.
I taught all grades K-12, all subjects, as the only teacher on the Aleutian Chain in the native villages in Alaska. This experience taught me how to differentiate instruction to individualize the learning and showed me how to love each student for who they are with their own strengths and weaknesses. Teaching is so much more than academics and I pour my heart and soul into developing a relationship with each student.
I enjoy teaching English, Social Studies and Life Skills. Each subject teaches life lessons and academic skills the students will need throughout the rest of their schooling years as well as their careers and families.
Feel free to stop by my classes any time, I love parent interaction and a chance to tell you how great your child is!
