I have been in public education for 24 years; teaching English and Creative Writing to students Grades 7-12.
Standards based - I have a leaning towards whole language - not fond of testing, but understand the necessity. I believe that creativity is the highest form of thinking, and that students learn best when they are utilizing their creative minds.
