TEACHING EXPERIENCE

14 years at a small New Jersey high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students have to read the classics. I have nothing against The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, or Percy Jackson. However, the chances of answering a question about Hogwarts on the SAT are pretty slim. A work of literature is more than the ideas of the author. It represents the society in which it was written. Literature is a reflection of history and society.
