Interim 6th Grade ELA Teacher
Hi! I will be covering for Hilary Watford as your 6th grade ELA teacher. I hold a Bachelor's degree in English, with a focus on Linguistics and Creative Writing. I also completed my Master's degree in Education with an emphasis in educational technology.
Working with students is supremely a pleasure for me. I have been working in education for over 13 years. I enjoy sharing my passion for reading and writing with students. Supporting students' ability to recognize various text features, styles, and intentions is fun. Guiding students through their writing is gratifying. In addition to my educational background, I have written and edited for many years. All of my experience culminates in my capacity to ensure that students achieve grade-appropriate literacy.
I spend most of my leisure time cooking and spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies include reading, writing, traveling, and learning more about various subjects. (I love history!) I'm pleased to be a part of our 6th grader's journey here at New West Charter School.
