Hello, Kino Kolts and parents! I am excited to be starting my 3rd year at Kino Junior High School. I teach English Language Arts to 8th graders. I love books and whenever I can, I read! I am a Mesa Public Schools alumni, as well as a graduate of Arizona State University. I currently have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and two Master's degrees (In English and in Education). I am an AVID trained educator, and incorporate those strategies into my daily teaching. I am a mother to a goofy four-year-old named Jameson. Along with my husband, Jameson and I enjoy going on adventures around Arizona.My favorite place to visit is Tombstone.
My classroom is high energy, with lots of discussions and creative activities. I encourage my students to think for themselves, and English class is a great place for them to inquire about the world and what we are learning. My classroom is very student-driven, and I allow them to choose the school-appropriate topics that we discuss and analyze in class. This allows for high student engagement as they practice and master the literacy and writing skills needed to be successful in high school and college/workplace.
Please, do not hesitate to connect me with any questions or concerns that you may have. It is going to be a great year!
