Language Arts and Reading teacher, AP Language and Literature experience in Kansas City

Methodology

My teaching method is an open and comfortable atmosphere. We will all learn together. I like group discussions and inquiry based learning. Differentiation is important to me, so I will tailor lessons based on what students are comfortable with. I want students to have fun while learning.

Background

I am a teacher who is taking time away from the classroom to raise two babies. I have 5+ years experience in the classroom teaching Language Arts, English, and AP Lit/Language to grades 6-12. I have recently been tutoring students in my spare time in test prep, essay writing, and more.
