Ms. Kaylin Schenk
Welcome! My name is Kaylin Schenk and I am excited about helping students increase performance, comprehension and achievement through the use of easy-to-use strategies!
I grew up in the Seattle, WA area (Go Seahawks!) and attended Washington State University for my Bachelor of Arts in English, as well as a minor in Law/ Sociology. While attending college, I was the writing tutor for the athletic teams, as well as an English instructor for students who did not pass their graduation writing portfolio. Through these experiences, I realized that teaching was my passion.
After graduation, I left for Albany, New York to pursue my Master of Science in Secondary Education. For the past 7 years, I have taught English grades 6- 12 in Washington, New York, Louisiana, and now, Texas. I have specialized in "at-risk" students and have come to realize that there are certain strategies that have been proven to increase performance within my students. It is my goal to help students become more self-sufficient in using these strategies to overcome and persevere though learning difficulties.
