Course Descriptions and Welcome
This is my sixth year of teaching, and I am loving it! I am a proud Cole graduate. I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in English and teacher certification in English, Language Arts, and Reading for grades eight through twelve. I am currently working towards earning a M.A. in Educational Leadership for K-12 schools to obtain my goal of becoming a high school principal one day soon. And, this summer my husband and I welcomed our son, Gunnar Mateo, to the world.
I love British literature, which is a benefit for the students since twelfth grade English focuses almost entirely on British literature. I believe that education should first and foremost be focused on what is best for the students. I specialize my teaching strategies for each class period based on the individual personality and needs of the students in that class. I encourage my students to provide feedback on their learning. I challenge each student in my classroom. My ultimate goal is to reach mastery of the material presented through engaging and student-centered instruction.
