Welcome learners, questioners, linguists, thinkers, readers, orators, writers, collaborators, students and teachers.

I am a Middle School ESOL, Language Arts and Technology teacher at an excellent public school in Keizer, Oregon. I love creating engaging lessons that light a fire for learning. My best lessons have always been inspired in some way by the students and colleagues at my school and I am so grateful for the chance to be learning together with them each day.

I started Teaching Torch as a way to keep these creative ideas and lessons alive and reaching beyond my class and school. I hope you find some inspiration here to use with your own class. :)
