I create secondary ELA curriculum so you can be your best teacher!
As a National Board Certified teacher in English Language Arts, I have taught nearly every course in grades 9-12, including both honors and basic skills courses. My passion is in creating curriculum that sparks curiosity and deep thinking in students.
In addition to classroom teaching, I also spent time as a writing instructor for an online university and I contracted with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) on state assessments. I scored the state writing assessment, wrote state prompts, created training materials for scorers, and scored the alternate assessments called COEs. I now spend my time creating standards-based curriculum for busy ELA teachers.
Like most new teachers, when I started I worked long days, nights, and weekends, often wondering, “why do I need to create curriculum from scratch when people have been teaching novels and essays for hundreds of years,?” I started Love and Let Lit in 2015 to stop the re-creation of the wheel by providing professional and engaging curriculum to help teachers reclaim their nights and weekends.
