I have been a high-school English teacher for over thirty years and continue to teach after my retirement as a supply teacher. While I was a PH. D student at Ottawa University, I taught a few courses to first-year students and a university summer course at the university's campus in Cornwall. I also taught a few summer courses to high school students for the Ottawa Board of Education. I enjoy writing critical commentaries on a wide variety of literary texts as well as teaching grammar and writing techniques. I especially enjoy dissecting works of literature and helping students come to grips with the text.
