MY TEACHING STYLE

My LA teaching style is a blend of old and new. I feel that students need a good foundation in the basics of our language. As a result, I teach grammar, homonyms, and analogies. These lessons pay great dividends in student writing when I teach essays and research papers. Then for literature, I blend several strategies to develop a love of reading in my students. These techniques include hands-on activities, independent reading, group reading, and literature circles. With my middle school history classes, I searched for nitty-gritty details that would make history come to life. Techniques included unit studies and story telling.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

* Numerous Certificates of Achievement from Prince William County Schools in recognition of my work in grant writing. * IBM and Teacher Magazine Teacher of the Year (one of four state-level winners for Virginia).
