I have been a high school English teacher for over 17 years. Having taught in both the midwest and the east coast regions of the country, I understand the importance of diversity in lesson planning. My lesson plans cover all levels of English from remedial level to college prep to honors/college/AP/IB. They are easily adaptable to meet any differentiated needs. My curriculum is designed to be colorful, engaging, and interactive. Often times I use humor to keep students interested (especially with grammar).
Relationships in the classroom are what make education a success. My goal is to have my students master the necessary concepts while developing a rapport with them. The relationships are developed by adapting lessons to include things in which I know that my students hold an interest.
