As an eighth-grade English teacher at Woodmere Middle School, I facilitate the teaching of reading, writing, speaking, and listening with a middle school "Team" model. Throughout my day, I collaborate with a team on lesson plans, curriculum, interdisciplinary units, field trips, student intervention, and teaching methods. As literary advisor, I edit the school's literary magazine, Woodmere Star, and the school newspaper, The Boulevard. I frequently inspire student participation in essay contests and publications. Many of my students have been published in national publications. Beyond the classroom walls, I have presented at a number of conferences including a "Teachers Can Write" workshop at the Long Island Writing Project Fall Conference 1994. I have also presented for the Long Island Language Arts Conference 1996, the Long Island Reading Council Conference 1996, Hofstra University's Graduate Science Education Program, Summer 1995, and Delta Phi Epsilon's Convention, 1996 in Phoenix, Arizona.
