TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent the first three years of my career teaching language arts to seventh graders. Since then (for the past eight years) I have mainly been teaching Freshman English and AP English.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My students tell me that I keep the class light and fun. I'm an energetic lecturer and discussion leader, and the students appreciate that.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Keynote Speaker for the NHS induction in 2005 Kenyon adjunct faculty 3rd place in Lakeland Community College Cartoon Contest.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS, MA in Education from the Ohio State University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As a high school English teacher, I'm on a constant search for ways to bring language arts concepts, classic literature and grammar lessons to life for students. One day, stuck on a particularly tough lesson about Shakespeare and looking for a way to communicate the concepts succinctly AND keep my class engaged, I decided to try combining my work as a comic artist with my teaching. What resulted was my first classroom comic -- a fun, engaging, clear and fast lesson told panel-by-panel as a comic. And it worked! Students loved it, understood the ideas, and retained it for the long term. Now many teachers are using my comics in the classroom to engage learners in new ways with grammar, poetry, and literature.
