I taught English Language Arts to grades 6-8 for two years at a private school in NYC. I covered a variety of topics, including vocabulary.

Certified English and ELA Teacher/Professional Writer and Editor

I feel that vocabulary building is an essential component to learning, and as a writer, I have a natural love for words. Throughout my classes, I've taught pre-reading vocab lessons for the stories and novels we would be studying. I find that interactive lessons in which the students internalize the word meanings are much more effective than straight memorization. Hi, I'm Gia and I live and work in the New Haven area.
