About Michaela

I recently moved to Durham from Boston, where I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. I have taught experience teaching in high school classrooms, but have also taught adult ed classes, summer school programs, and camps. I really love teaching and am looking for an opportunity that will put me in a place again where I can help kids learn!

I have taught HS English classes as well as Spanish classes and think I have a knack for teaching languages. As terrifyingly corny as it sounds, I love words and have a history of connecting with students to make learning fun. Few things are more difficult than getting high school students excited for a required Spanish class or summer school English, but through creative lessons, good rapport, and engaging with material I feel my students really learn!

I am confident that I can help you become more confident and skilled in Language Arts. Feel free to contact me to have a discussion about what you need as a learner and we can discuss how I can help as an educator. I look forward to it!
