TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 25th year teaching. Each instructional experience has helped me grow as a teacher- US Peace Corps; Togo (West Africa), inner city Miami, suburban Seattle, ESL in Korea, international school in Colombia, school of choice Miami, Florida Virtual School and now, suburban Atlanta. Learning never stops as I am undertaking a doctoral degree and hope to effect policy on a national level. Follow me on Twitter @dlaughey and Pinterest http://pinterest.com/dlaughey/
