TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been a teacher for seven years, and I've taught all learning levels and grade levels of students. I began my teaching career with 6th graders, and I now teacher 10th grade and 12th grade. I've taught special needs students, ESL students, IB students, and students who are concurrently enrolled in a local community college. Additionally, I am adjunct faculty for this community college, teaching my high school students 200-level English courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

At the core of my beliefs as an English teacher: literature and writing matter. Perhaps this is because of my background as a creative writing, but I believe, with all my heart, that literature is important to our lives because it reflects our humanity back to us in a way that no other form of art can. As for writing, I believe that is a vital part of how we express ourselves. Yes, writing is important because in the "real world" students will use it every day in their jobs, writing emails and memos and status reports. We should not forget, however, about its value as a means of self-expression. Too much, these days, I think this is overlooked. My teaching is a reflection of these core beliefs because I always make room in my teaching for those activities of creativity and self-expression that, in a world of standards and testing, are so often overlooked. That said, I believe standards and test-pep can be worked into lessons is such a way that it is not a boring exercise in drill-and-kill. Literature is fun. Writing is fun. And I want my students to have a chance to see their education beyond the confines of a standardized test.
