Rachel Miner - Upper Elementary Literature Teacher
Mrs. Miner has been involved with Literature At Our House since its creation six years ago, and last year she became the Upper Elementary teacher. Watch the video below she created at the start of last year.
I'm excited to welcome Mrs. Fingerhut to our team as our UE WW teacher! I've known Tonya for over 15 years, many of which we worked together. I've learned so much from her, and I think she's a wonderful teacher.
From Mrs. Fingerhut:
"Students, from elementary through high school, have always succeeded in surprising me with their understanding of the world. I love teaching writing because I am constantly rediscovering joys, both great and small, through the work of my students. Being a part of the LitAOH team means I have the opportunity to do meaningful work while exploring a new way of teaching writing.
At Fingerhut Academy Homeschool, I worked with 7th-12th grade students in writing, literature, geology, and art appreciation. At Van Damme Academy, a private school, I taught elementary students math, grammar, literature, and writing."
