San Diego, California An alum and teacher for San Diego Unified Schools English Language Arts, Reading, Spanish Single-subject Credential Bilingual Cross Cultural Language Acquisition and Development Certified I taught lots of reading and writing to high school students, great fun, Daily Apple Press products were created by listening with great empathy to my students' reservations, complaints, tirades and tantrums, validating what I could and explaining what I couldn't. Bless them each and every one.
Old School Style: Start where the learner is at, paraphrase of John Dewey's famous and more formal remark Be a Master of Your Subject: Language Arts is a feast, Linguistic Awareness is a menu, ignore the pretense and go for the content. Chomsky Rocks the world. Be a Loving-Kindness-Mindful educator in the service of public education, or any other kind of education that fosters literacy
