I have over twenty years of teaching experience. I’ve taught in an early college high school, a traditional high school, and a STEM school. I’ve also taught over 200 grammar, writing, and literature courses for local community colleges and online universities.
I am an extremely structured teacher. I focus on having students "do" in class, using brain-based strategies to engage all kinds of learners. My lessons incorporate scaffolding, collaboration, technology, and games. Students say my class is fun!
