Discovery Education
PD Specialist
Portland, OR
I spent much of my teaching career in the Albuquerque School District where I taught both English and Creative Writing at the high school level. I recently moved to Portland, OR where I taught in the Portland Public School District. My curricular focus includes a mixture of teaching methodologies that centered on developing students’ self and spirit. During my time as an educator, I sponsored the slam poetry team and the creative writing club. I participated in Discovery Education’s teacher-leader program where I fell in love with Discovery’s ability to develop versatile lesson plans using multiple forms of media. I have since become a Professional Development Specialist for Discovery Education.
