TEACHING EXPERIENCE

* Prince William County Schools, VA. 6th and 7th grade LA and history teacher. Also grant proposal writer. 1990 - 1999. 2005 - 2008. * CACI, Chantilly, VA. Technical writer for computer software company, 1999 - 2005. * Canton (MS) Public Schools. 7th grade LA teacher. 1987 - 1990 * Bay County (FL) Public Schools. HS English teacher. 1982 - 1984. * Ouachita (LA) Christian School. English and social studies teacher. 1978- 1979.

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).
