TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Besides the traditional classroom I have taught in the prison system, residential mental health facilities and in theaters across the country. Currently I am a STEM coach for the Uncompadre Boces. Prior to that I taught GED prep at the Commonwealth Challenge, the Adult Learning Center (both in Virginia Beach) and alternative grades 4-8 science, drama and language arts at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Suffolk, VA. I also am a drama minister at Fools for Christ www.foolsforchrist.net (free scripts and teacher resources) and the owner/director of Mesa Murder Mysteries.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Two for the price of one! What ever works! From experience in alternative education I try to get double mileage with all lessons to catch my students up. I use Reader's Theater to augment curriculum in all content areas since it not only provides content and fun but works on reading skills such as fluency, vocabulary building and prediction. See my website at www.foolsforchrist.net for more info.
