I have taught for 5 years in three different schools. I have primarily served as a High School English Teacher, although I have also taught, drama, 8th Grade US History, Speech, AVID, and Career and Life Choices (a Freshmen Prep Class). I also coached Speech and Debate for 4 years and as Theater Director for one year.
My goal is to provide students with the skills that they need to access whatever future goals they have for themselves. I consider it important to not just teach students a subject but to help them learn how to develop critical reasoning and problem solving skills so that they can access information and other resources in the future.
