I tried so hard to make my classes paperless, but, as an English teacher, the most difficult to solve was correcting/editing papers. This tool standardized the process a bit, which meant I at least didn't have to explain every mark I made on the

I don't care if a bunch of professors in Ivory Towers want to tell you there is no canon in literature and that cultural literacy tests are biased and unnecessary. Assuming it's still true that the wealthy, cultured, privileged, and powerful in our

I still can't believe my wife wrote her own study guides. I can't believe even more that she also created an answer key. You know someone at your school has one, but that person maybe isn't going to give it to you to use, and you're also not sure

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twelve years teaching in a suburban district near Milwaukee.
Check out my own creative writing here My wife taught four years, as well. She taught more of the Advanced classes and less of the creative ones.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Use of technology in the classroom when useful. Taught several classes completely online. Emphasis on Cultural Literacy and background knowledge in order to understand literature and how to write, but also to connect with other classes. My wife was the typical martyr teacher who planned until 7pm on a Friday for the next week. Her lessons are organized and usable out of the box, whereas a teacher might have to step outside the box to see how cool my lessons can be.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My honor was to have students published in my creative writing classes, students who otherwise disliked school or English class to succeed, and for students to tell me today that they remember lessons from over a decade ago. Many of the honors and awards from my past will do little to shape my future, but the fact that people like you are purchasing and using some of these lessons that took me hours upon hours of my own time to create is a great honor. Some of these units were important in the lives of students I was able to reach, and there's magic in a few of the assignments. I just hope that these downloads being here for you can make your life a little easier.
