TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 1993. Over the course of that time I have taught Math/Science Core at a middle school, World History to 7th graders, American History to 8th graders, Teen Issues, and math lab. After 15 years at Hanshaw Middle School in Modesto CA, I made the move to Enochs High School. I currently teach AP Psychology, and CP Psychology (11th and 12th grades) at Enochs High School in Modesto CA, and have been doing so since 2009. I am currently (2/5/16) the ONLY full time Psychology teacher in my district!! That makes me more rare than librarians....

MY TEACHING STYLE

Mostly direct instruction across the board, with tons of activities in my Psychology classes. I used to use tons of technology at the Jr. High level since as a Title 1 school we had a lot of access to technology. I still use it as much as possible My attitude is that I want my kids DOING Psychology as much as possible, whether in the lab or in the "real world."

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Can't say I have ever been honored but I was featured in a district newsletter for my work with resource students. I have had people tell me for years that my curriculum was great and that I should sell it...well, here it is...as of 03/09/17, I have had $3505 in sales so I guess they were right...:)
