I have been a high school English teacher for the past 17 years. I absolutely love teaching! I love the interaction with others that teaching affords me, and I absolutely live and breathe Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet! Over the years, I have taught Peer Mediation (Focusing on effective conflict resolution skills), Career Pathways (Focusing on providing students with the skills they will need after high school in order to get jobs, and become successful citizens), and all levels of learners in English (Grade 9). This year I have also been teaching a Drama class which has truly been a challenging, but rewarding experience!
My teaching style is simple and can easily be summed up ― "People will not care how much you know until they know how much you care." ― Theodore Roosevelt
Yet to be added
I have my Bachelor's degree from the University of Florida (Go Gators), and my Master's degree from Troy State University.
Someday, I will spend all of my time on the "coast" of somewhere beautiful. For now, teaching English in Florida is honestly the next best thing!
