I am entering my tenth year teaching in high schools. Before teaching in high school, I taught for 4 years as a university instructor.
I really emphasize that students should read outside of class. My Teachers Pay Teachers page is focused pretty narrowly on providing multiple choice, comprehension-check quizzes that can be used to verify that advanced students have been reading their books. I hope to upload quizzes on books that are high quality and that students can love--but that are not often taught or read.
I have won the district "Educator of the Year" and "Instructor of the Year" awards at two different schools, in 2005 and 2016.
