TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught seventh grade writing for four years and high school English for three years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching is a performance, and we better have a good act if we really want to keep students engaged. When it comes to writing, I've learned that the best tool we have for improving content is improving sentence structure.
