Meet Me: Katie Chambers
I am an experienced educator with eight years of teaching in the classroom. I graduated college with honors and scored in the top 3% in the nation on the English Praxis exam, an exam for prospective teachers.
After graduating college, I spent eight years teaching English both in junior high and high school. While working at a local junior high, my principal called me the best English teacher she has ever seen, parents called in to praise my methods, and students reported an increase in writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills. Moreover, while working in public education, I was selected to teach professional development courses to other teachers on various topics: critical reading strategies, the art of teaching writing, and student engagement.
I do specialize in writing and grammar; however, I also feel capable teaching reading comprehension, reading analysis, public speaking skills, and some math subjects (6th/7th grade math, pre-algebra, and algebra I). I tutored algebra students in high school and college.
