14 years of teaching experience. I taught 5 years in a school for youth-at-risk, and 2 years at a National Blue Ribbon School. Currently, I teach Mythology to high school seniors, Sophomore English, the English Language Development class for ELL students, and AP Language and Composition.
I am a very visual person. I like to incorporate video, music, and media into my classroom each day if possible. I also like for my assignments and handouts to be visually appealing.
