TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 25 years. I've taught at the elementary level, but the bulk of my career has been spent teaching high school English. I also teach AP Language and Composition, and Creative Writing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to infuse my teaching with the visual arts and music whenever possible. I'm always looking for ways to get the students up and out of their seats, and engaged with each other. While assessment has its place, I don’t believe every activity or lesson plan needs to have a rubric. Students need the space to learn and create without always having a “grade” hanging over their heads. I'm currently learning how to turn my high school ELA classroom into a makerspace! I don't view myself as a "sage on the stage," but rather I prefer to think of myself as a "guide on the side." Discussion and participation are so important in the classroom, so I rely on Socratic techniques quite often. I like to view my classroom as a creative tapestry full of rich, memorable, and educational experiences.
