TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! My name's Renee – I'm Flipping Words – and I've been teaching English for almost 20 years, both around the world at international schools and colleges and at colleges and universities in my home country of Canada. Most of my experience has been with high school students and young adults although I've also taught younger children and adults. I've specialized in teaching English to speakers of other languages; I'm also a research specialist and a writing specialist.

MY TEACHING STYLE

You know, I've vacillated about my teaching style for years, as new teaching trends come and go, with the research I read, and with my own teaching experiences. Preparing students for the world they're going to inhabit is probably my top priority... and then, finding the significance in the information and concepts that I'm delivering and presenting it all in such a way that students get it. At the same time, I expect students to work hard... but more, I expect them to engage in hard work. It's rewarding.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Recogniton of Excellence as a TA, Carleton Universiy; Ottawa, Canada, 2016

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I've got my Honours degree in English and applied linguistics and an M.A. in applied linguistics and discourse studies. For my masters, I focused on multimodal communication - which works out to how meaning is constructed in verbal and visual environments - and I did my thesis on the differences in meaning-making in Engineering and English textbooks.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm currently on a hiatus of sorts, travelling & working on a research project – partly inspired by my recent year-long go at my PhD, which I'll return to when the timing is right – so for now, I have the time, finally, to write the rocking lesson plans I'd always dreamed of writing.
