About me

I taught middle school for 2 years. I'm currently in my 14th year of teaching high school English. I've also taught two courses on the college level and I did that for seven years. I have taught creative writing and public speaking electives in addition to regular English classes. I have taught AP English for the past three years. I decided to name my store and my blog Juggling ELA because I always feel like I'm doing a metaphorical juggling act. As an ELA teacher I need to teach novels, short stories, plays, poetry, different genres of writing, grammar, vocabulary, etc. I also feel like I'm teaching social studies some days with all the background information I need to know for the various works of literature. I've worked hard in the last 16 years and now I'm trying to help other ELA teachers through TpT. If you have any questions or suggestions let me know JugglingELA@gmail.com

  1. Any suggestions about how to encourage creative writing for elementary school kids? My son is in second grade and recently developed a hobby of writing stories. Here is his website :

    Any suggestions on his writing skills and how to improve it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
