TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The 2013-14 school year challenges me to find the same passion for teaching and learning that I experienced 26 years ago when I first stepped in front of a classroom of high school students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I realized early in my teaching career that I could use the passion passed along to me by my own teachers and professors to significantly affect others. Through nurturing and caring for my students, I began giving them what I had received. I worked very hard to make sure that every lesson I taught led my students to discover and question and wonder so that they could learn the answers for how to live well. My students know, first and foremost, that I care about them as human beings and that I care about their success as learners. My students know that I will work as hard as I have to make sure they grow and prosper in their learning. Early in my career I realized the responsibility I have for giving them a purpose and helping them to set goals for their futures. I teach with this purpose in mind.
