I teach six different high school ELA classes everyday. Yes, six preps! As a teacher in a small rural district, my schedule is diverse to meet the needs of students. Throughout the year I plan to focus my blogs on student voice in the classroom as a reflection of meeting student needs.
I enjoy working with teachers to pool our collective ideas and talents. To fill my teaching bucket in this way, I participate in the ESD 101 ELA Fellows, lead a community of practice for Bridge to College and enjoy working with the CorelaborateWa teachers.
I am in my twelfth year teaching; two doors down the hall, my husband is in his second year as an AgEd teacher and FFA adviser . Our two young daughters, 8 and 5, keep us crazy-- I mean busy--as we juggle 4-H, dance, basketball, t-ball and more.
