Kendall Demonstration Elementary School 1308

I graduated from Indiana School for the Deaf in 2007, and attended Gallaudet University for my bachelor degrees. I graduated in 2012 with dual B.A.s in English and Secondary Education. I currently work as a middle school English teacher at Kendall Demonstration Elementary School. I am also currently working on my Master of Sciences in Deaf Education from McDaniel College.

I supervise students in my classroom on a daily basis. We use a flex-group system where students are grouped based on their language ability rather than by grade. I plan, implement, and reflect on lesson plans. I assess students and create IEP goals based on their areas of need. I use a bilingual approach in my classroom with both ASL and written English.

I teach English to the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. I focus on both literature and informative texts. I include a variety of reading strategies, assessments, and projects in my classroom.

I am currently serving on the Executive Committee for the Academic Bowl competition run by Gallaudet University. I am also a chaperone for the Battle of the Books teams at KDES.
