TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For 25 years as a public high school English teacher, I have written my own materials to address the needs of my students. I have taught ESL, honors, AP, and dual enrollment level courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think questions are at the core of learning. The goal is to have students create their own probing questions about what they are reading and to form the basis of their research and writing.
