I began teaching six years ago at the age of 45, after completing a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Missouri State University. This is my seventh year teaching Language Arts in a small rural middle school and I love it.
My three abiding interests:
- incorporating a study of real-world events, issues, and people into Language Arts instruction
- providing authentic writing experiences
- seeing my students become published writers!
- Language Arts
- Authentic Writing
- Current Events
- Human Rights Education
