I have over 15 years of high-school and middle-school teaching experience - I have taught a mish-mash of subjects including English, ESL, Geography and Science.
I love to try new things every year with my students. Whether it's a new strategy or a new technology, I think it's important to stay current with what's going on in the wonderful world of education. I believe that it's important to PROVOKE my students into thinking, RELATE their learning to their lives, REVEAL information to them and lastly (and perhaps most importantly) INVOLVE them in the process.
