TEACHING EXPERIENCE

More than 30 years experience in alternative education. Constantly looking to find and improve the connection between fun and learning. In addition to teaching Shakespeare, Government, Economics, and the U.S. Constitution, to name a few, I also coach several Mock Trial teams every year.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Primarily through unit studies, topical studies, and games. In high school classes also use a fair amount of discussion and debate.
