I have taught at the high school level for almost eight years, instructed ACT courses, and written lesson plans and units for Book Rags. I taught for a year at an alternative school, grades 6-12. I also have written in the educational channel at Bright Hub and for the educational section at Everything Mom.
I am very systematic. Organization and structure are key for a safe and productive learning environment. When students understand expectations, they are willing to strive to meet them. With my teaching materials, I have clear instructions and diverse activities. Students learn best if their teachers provide them with a variety of learning methods. Creating so many activities is time consuming, especially in a world where time is so short. I am so happy to provide and buy lesson plans, worksheets, and testing materials.
In over ten years of teaching, I have applied for and received five classroom grants. My master's research project was published in ERIC Digest.
