TEACHING EXPERIENCE

* 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

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.
