TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in the public high school since 1994. My specialty lies in 11th and 12th grade, with a focus on American Literature (I hold a master's in American Literature from Arizona State University) although I am fluent in mythology and English literature as well, with some background in African novels. The vast majority of that has been in IB and AP classrooms at Chandler High School, an A+ rated school with a highly diverse student body. In addition, I serve as a reader for the AP program and an examiner for IB exams.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe strongly in a curriculum that focuses on skill acquisition, not knowledge acquisition. As such, I try to scaffold my students towards being independent learners, capable of transferring the skills gained in my classroom to both future classes and real world applications. This leads to a classroom that is highly student centered, with students developing skills on projects in reading, writing, and speaking/listening skills.
