Give me a raucous eucalyptus tree and a piteous poodle, and I will be happy.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught every level and subject area of ESL at community colleges and adult schools for over 20 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love a noisy classroom. I like to use games and skits to practice grammar points and vocabulary. It changes up the routine to keeps students engaged, and hopefully entertains them. I write jazz chants, skits, and poems for this purpose. These also help students with fluency and pronunciation and intonation. And they are fun and build community in the classroom. Currently, I am working on longer works for reader's theater productions.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've always been an adjunct instructor at community colleges and universities and adult schools. Adjunct instructors do not receive honors and awards that I know of. We are paid by the hour and lucky to get health insurance. The big honor for an adjunct is getting hired.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My own background is in math and anthropology (BA), linguistics (MA), and creative writing. I have studied writing with the poet Jack Grapes in Los Angeles. I have written two novels, which are soon due to be published.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am currently running a reader's theater group at my local senior assisted living facility. I am adapting my own reader's theater scripts for the group, and it's fun. I am also publishing 2 completed novels very soon for Kindle.
