TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have fiftenn years of teaching experience in a small town, rural school district. I have taught freshmen, sophomores, juniors, honors sophomores and honors juniors.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try very hard to incorporate both left-brain and right-brain focused assignments. It is critical to me that my students know how to apply what they have learned. I'm a bit more formal with my honors sophomores and honors juniors in the type of assignments I offer, but discussion is key to all of my classes. I love laughter in the classroom and want my students to view me as a lifelong learner, not someone with all of the answers.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Two-time presenter at NCTE conferences (Denver and New York City) Presenter at OCTELA Spring Conference, Columbus, Ohio Nominee for the Golden Apple Award (school district's Teacher of the Year award)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. in English Education from The Ohio State University Masters in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have learned over the years that I simply cannot continue to stay at school until 5 PM every night and then go home and grade papers. My husband died in 2006 from brain cancer, and we have a seven year old daughter. I have had to learn how to simplify my life with routine in the classroom and smarter practices so that I can leave school at 3 PM and not take work home. This works pretty well except when research papers roll in...they are an entirely different beast, as we all know!
