MY TEACHING STYLE

All over the board, I enjoy creating as many new activities for students to learn language as possible. I am also interested in reading guides for my student's favorite books, and movie guides for a variety of subjects. I enjoy laying out a lesson from a film that allows students to interact with a movie, not just watch it.
