About

I am an English teacher with my MAEd in English Education and MA in English (rhetoric & composition), and I am also currently a PhD student studying reading, writing, children’s literature, and digital literacies.

I believe in the “power” of multiliteracies and enjoy learning about how we can best implement new pedagogical strategies to meet the needs of the diverse students walking through the doors into our evolving classrooms.

The purpose of this blog is to create a place where I can chronicle my thoughts on my teaching experiences, my teaching ideas, and my various readings.  Also, ultimately, this blog serves as a realm in which I can work towards becoming a more engaged, active researcher on what works – and doesn’t work – in the English classroom. (And, perhaps, receive the input/thoughts/opinions of educators (and students) from across the globe!)

You can also read a bit more about “English Teacher, too” here. Enjoy!

  1. Just stopping by and saying good luck in your foray into teaching! I just started my own blog on blogspot where I could focus on sharing my classroom ideas; I was searching for other teacher blogs like mine to connect to, and Google brought me yours 🙂 Hope you are enjoying the experiences & learning a lot!

  2. I am a mom and have a daughter who plays basketball. What age group are you coaching? Good luck in the classroom and on the court too. Coaching girls can be challenging to say the least but girls are very competitive so let out that competitive spirit; I think you will be surprised by how the girls respond to you. Regardless, win or lose the object is to learn life skills and have fun! Good luck again!

  3. I am so happy I came across your blog! I will be student teaching next semester and it’s always nice to find blogs that could help me! Keep up the great work, and I can’t wait to read more!

  4. Hello, I have a quick question for you about your site. If you could please get back to me as soon as possible I would greatly appreciate it. Have a great day!

    Thanks,
