Over 30 years of teaching from pre-school through college age students. I currently teach English Language Learners full-time at a community college. I also develop and facilitate professional development trainings for faculty on many topics, but especially on using educational technology to enhance the learning experience.
My teaching style involves organizing and setting up the learning experience for students to be engaged and active in their own individual learning process. I only use authentic materials and do not use a textbook. I draw the topics we explore from students own lives. There are multiple paths to reach any of the learning outcomes we are seeking.
