About Me

My name is Jenna Broadley and I am a high school English teacher living in Toronto, Ontario. I have been teaching for over seven years, although sometimes it feels like it's my first day, while other days make me feel like it's been a lifetime!

I love my job and I love what I teach! Although I believe that literacy is essential, it's a pure joy of reading and creative expression found in writing that I hope to instill in all my students. 

I can remember when I first realized that I loved reading: It was in grade three and my favourite teacher, Mrs. Collins, read our class Fantastic Mr. Fox; as a result, I read as many of Dahl's books as I could get ahold of and I was hooked! 

My goal with this blog is to share some of what I do in my classroom as I continue to grow, develop and reflect on my teaching strategies. I have experience teaching most levels of high school English, but am always changing and coming up with new methods of teaching that meets my students' needs. Helpful suggestions and advice are always welcome!
