TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Ten years as a high school English and Visual Arts teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Casual, informal, holistic, with references to pop culture. I like to make my students laugh. :) School can be rough for high school students. We make them wake up early in the morning so that we can tell them to read a play by some dude 500 years ago in another country. So if I can make them laugh, I'll do it. Nothing says you can't laugh and learn at the same time.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm a Canadian high school teacher who thinks learning can be fun, but serious at the same time. I've taught students of all high school grades and experience levels from International Baccalaureate students to students who don't fit in the traditional school model (but are still super cool cats.) I'll be uploading some of my resources up every so often. Please come back and check it out! Friendly feedback is always welcomed. That's how we all learn and improve. :)
