TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have enjoyed 23 years in education, including 19 in the high school English classroom and three years as a 6-12 ELA curriculum specialist for the third largest school district in North Carolina. I have taught all levels of English 9, 10, 11, and 12; AP English Language & Composition; Newspaper Journalism; and Creative Writing. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I have served as Department Chair, SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) Accreditation Committee Chair, and Writing Lead Teacher. In my district role, I developed curriculum documents, developed a system-wide writing benchmark process, created and facilitated professional development for teachers and administrators, and coached middle and high school ELA teachers. In addition, I have served on the North Carolina Writing Advisory Committee, been a reader for the AP English Language & Composition exam, and scored the SAT writing component. I have spent several summers teaching English as a Second Language in Europe and can speak basic Hungarian and French. In June of 2013, I left teaching to raise our adopted son and devote more time to writing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My strength is my ability to build rapport with my students, so my lessons are very relational; conferencing, cooperative grouping, pair work, and seminars are common elements of my lessons. I tend to script my own lesson plans, so my published materials are ready to be used in the classroom.
