Degrees and Certifications:
BA English Literature
Welcome to Miss Graber's English class. A little bit about me: I grew up in New Jersey, and I graduated from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. I have a passion for traveling, learning about new cultures, and trying new foods.
My teaching philosophy stands:
"Through my teaching of literacy and writing pedagogies, I will successfully promote diverse learning to shape self-reliant critical thinkers."
An effective literature teacher will strive to create a positive, encouraging atmosphere so all types of students feel free to share, debate, and discuss without fear of ridicule. For teaching English, specifically, I believe collaborative exercises support diverse learning within a literature classroom. As a teacher of writing, I believe one must guide their students while welcoming different viewpoints and perspectives the diversity of the class will bring. Thus, I will utilize focused free writes and a writing process that calls for self-reflection to produce meaningful work.
"My commitment to my students goes beyond teaching them content but includes providing insight and awareness of what it means to be an upstanding, self-reliant individual."
