Teaching Materials

  • I love having my students be active versus passive.
  • I love having them work together to problem-solve and create.
  • I love being creative with lesson-planning, and I love having my students come up with their own ideas.

Each year and each class produces a different flavor of learning. A lone document doesn’t accurately convey the active learning or interaction in my classroom. This collection, a sampling of materials that I have used in my teaching, moreso shows the range of curriculum I have taught.

If you want to know more about how I engage students in learning, contact me and let’s have a conversation!
