I have taught at the high school level for the last 14 years, and elementary for two years prior to that. I teach mostly Latin, English and Speech Communications. I am an NSDA coach (National Speech and Debate Association) and World Language Department head.
I am all about incorporating technology into my lessons, mixing up the content so the kids aren't stuck on one thing for too long, and coming up with ways to encourage critical thinking. I am NOT about procrastinating, though I can alter my lessons on the fly if I can tell that they just aren't cutting it.
