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!)
