While I use a lot of fun novels to build my student's love of reading, I wanted to add an historical novel based on a true story that would open great doors for discussion. Never did I think my students would enjoy this novel as much as they did.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After teaching for 30 years in a variety of venues (public, private and homeschool) and at a variety of levels (5-12th grade, teachers, and adults), I have collected an amazing amount of ideas. Some didn't work very well --so they were thrown out. Others worked at some grade levels more than others. Some had amazing results. Those are the ideas I want to share with other teachers. They are tried, tested and found to offer great results. When I speak at teacher's conventions, (something I have done for over ten years) my classes overflow because the word is out. Year after year I give teachers something they can take home and immediately use with success. I am not bragging here, I am just delighted to share these ideas with you as well. I am committed to helping other teachers have great success with their students. In addition to teaching English, American History and Psychology, I have also formed a summer drama group for kids 6-18. I"ve been doing this for 18 years, and I write my own plays so that kids can all have equal parts and a meaningful character. This is called Creative Youth Theater (www.CreativeYouthTheater.com). I love incorporating drama into my English curriculum as well. It is also a great privilege to gain ideas from other teachers. This is an awesome web site.

MY TEACHING STYLE

CREATIVE! First and foremost. HANDS ON! A short explanation, then try it. IN DIGESTABLE PIECES! Ideas broken down to get one concept at a time with success. WITH VARIETY! Each unit has some new skill to learn, some new adventure to explore with necessary repetition creatively woven into the plans. CHALLENGING! I don't guage the lesson by the lowest student, but give is a variety to appeal to all learning levels. Success at every corner. Challenge in each step, yet not overwhelming. I believe kids will RISE to higher levels than ever imaginable. PRACTICAL! No busy work. There is a reason behind everything to prepare the student for the next step up the ladder of learning and then on to college or success in a profession.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Okay....I'll be honest. Growing up, I hated school. When everyone told me that I would be a great teacher, I balked. Why would I want to do that and continue the pain? Then one day quite by chance in an emergency, I was called in to teach a middle school class when the teacher had to be taken to the hospital. Much to my great surprise, I found I loved teaching! I went back to school to get my credential with a goal to do it differently than my former teachers. I wanted to "make learning a joy!" That was my personal goal. Now, 30 years later, I am so glad I found my "sweet spot" in life. I went to several colleges and universities to complete my degree, but most of my teaching skills came from trial and error in the classroom while discovering what helps students learn.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have taught in public school for years, but I have also had the privilege of teaching at Christian schools. I will offer lesson plans that will work in any classroom, and then on some lessons, I will add other ideas to incorporate faith into the lesson if you choose to use that as well. I also teach homeschoolers and will offer lessons that can easily be used in a small homeschool class.
