TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my eight year teaching high school English. I have taught 9th, 10th, and 11th grade, including Honors English 9 and Pre-AP English 10. I currently teach English 10 and Pre-AP English 10 at a small semi-urban district.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is a mix of traditional and nontraditional methods. I combine direct instruction with student centered learning activities and projects with a strong emphasis on student self-evaluation.
