Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies

I am in my fifteenth year of teaching in a face-to-face school and have taught eighth grade and fifth grade. I teach eighth grade science in my face to face school and I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth grade language arts and social studies for Illinois Virtual School.

I wanted to become a teacher at a very young age because I love learning and the process of education.
