TEACHING EXPERIENCE

When I'm not being mommy to my little girl, I work as an adjunct at a community college offering courses in business communication, public speaking and computer skills. I have experience teaching 5-12 grade English/Language Arts, Speech and Theater/Drama. I also have experience working as a teacher for a SPED transition program that offers internships and job skills training to high school seniors (Project SEARCH).

MY TEACHING STYLE

Experiential, Project, Research, Writing. I am not a fan of tests! I want the kids to demonstrate skills rather than memorize information for a test.
