Anytime we search for a word or phrase to dilute something unpalatable, a euphemism comes to the rescue. For example, "to let someone go" is a polite way of firing the person. Since war is so disagreeable, the military constantly employs euphemisms.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have a total of 52 years of teaching experience. Both of us have a Master of Arts in English and we have taught all levels from remedial through honors. Both of us have been "Teachers of the Year." We were also in charge of staff development. A significant portion of our teaching occurred at schools with a high percentage of low-income, English-limited students. This environment compelled us to create lessons that would appeal to the interests and abilities of a widely diversified group of students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We have always believed in having high expectations from students. That does not mean that all students will achieve those expectations, but if we ask very little of our students, that is all we receive. In addition, we always tried to create a classroom environment that was friendly, non-judgmental and inquisitive. We wanted our students to not only challenge one another, but also to question our assumptions. Every year we combined our efforts and classrooms to present dynamic and engaging lessons.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Numerous "Teacher of the Year" awards.
