MS Grammar & Literature Teacher / HS Speech & Creative Writing @ Living Rock Academy Christian School

Currently working as a middle school ELAR Teacher and looking for employment closer to home (in Boerne, TX). At Living Rock Academy I have taken leadership of heading our school's participation in the ACSI Creative Writing Festival every year with 100% of our participating students placing in the top three spots. This year we also participated in TAPPS ReadyWriting. Other job duties include helping to coordinate cross-curricular field trips once every 9 weeks and monitor students on volunteer outreach within the local community. Also, as a volunteer, I have attended several Tejas Christian Camps for the students at the beginning of each school year.
