I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher who finds joy in helping students succeed. For a decade, I have worked diligently to improve my teaching by integrating insights from my graduate studies, college teaching, and other education-related activities (e.g., inquiry-based projects, continuing education). These experiences have afforded me a deeper understanding of literacy and pedagogy, and prepared me to provide high quality literacy instruction to students in developmental reading and writing and in secondary education programs. Detailed information concerning my experiences and qualifications can be found in my Portfolio.
