About Me
Success at School

A few years ago, I earned a graduate degree in English education. During my coursework, I was required to spend hundreds of hours in middle school and high school classrooms. As a result of this requirement, I learned many successful teaching strategies from veteran teachers. For instance, I discovered that teachers often create fun projects students can complete in groups. When working in groups, students benefit from their classmates’ strengths.
