I began teaching in Fall of 2007 after arriving a bit late to the profession, as I didn’t attend college immediately after I graduated from high school. I have taught in three schools in three different counties in Colorado, all of which are high-poverty, low-income schools. Subjects with which I have experience include:

      1. Introduction to Literature (9th grade).


      2. American Literature (11th grade).


      3. British Literature (11th or 12th grade).


      4. World Literature (11th or 12th grade).


      5. AP Language and Composition (11th or 12th grade, depending on the school).


    6. International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Language A, all Parts (11th and 12th grade, 2- year program).

I also have experience with Gifted and Talented Students. For three years I served as the Gifted and Talented Liaison for a grade level of students (I “looped” with them.) This meant a lot of things, not the least of which was significant affective support.

Here is a list of additional trainings I have attended over the years:
