* Have taught in the 20th Century and the 21st Century. Not hopeful I'll teach in the 22nd. * Have frequently said, "Well, that didn't go exactly as planned." * Have frequently said, "Next time I'll do that little bit differently." * Have discovered that teaching is my calling. Discovery occurred at the age of 28.
My teaching style makes it hard for my administrators to "evaluate" me. I work hard creating engaging activities and gathering materials to support learning. When it's showtime and the lesson is working like I envisioned it, the students collaborate, evaluate, analyze and synthesize. There's not much for me to do except watch and assess. I guess I produce the shows my students act in. I'm less interested in producing work sheets for you and more interested in providing something that is fun, creative, and thoughtful.

Still waiting but I have received some nice letters from students thanking me for my efforts. Those are always nice to receive.
