TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 6 years and lucky enough to cultivate a wide range of teaching experiences. I have taught World Religions in an International Baccalaureate program, Theology in several catholic schools, but currently I am the Director of a Scholars Program at the high school level. In addition to teaching a class on philosophy and ethics, I also teach AP Human Geography for freshman. Additionally, I have led students on service trips to Haiti, Camden, Peru, Mexico, and other local sites. I piloted a service learning course and have taught in the other areas such as: Catholic Social Teaching, Introduction to Philosophical Thought, Catholic Sacraments and Morality, Church History, Theology of the Body.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Typically I employ an engaged discussion style intermixed with some dialogical lecture. I frequently supplement outside resources which are essential to any successful course. I challenge my students to think critically about the world around them and encourage them not confine their methods of thinking. I assign papers, projects and prepare students to express themselves orally and in writing.
