TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in the public school system (all subjects) and instructed education courses at the college and university level. I have taught ESL/EAL courses, delivered teacher training workshops and conducted teacher evaluations. I am currently involved with a language development project that targets young learners in the day care centers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to learning with a hands-on delivery style that includes games, songs, and stories.
