20 years as a high school English teacher, mostly Grade 11 students, from 1974-1994. Taught AP English for three years. Attended summer NEH institutes on Teaching Shakespeare and Teaching Beckett. Left teaching in 1994. Have worked for the last 20 years at Pioneer Training, a computer training company, where I do classroom instruction for business and web design.
I am no longer teacher, but loved teaching Shakespeare by having students perform the plays. When spoken, the text always became more accessible to students. I was always happy to prove to skeptical colleagues that Shakespeare was not "too difficult" for high school students, something that is taken for granted in many schools today.
