TEACHING EXPERIENCE

22 years' experience teaching English/Comm. Arts in the middle school, high school and collegiate level. Courses range from standard Middle School English courses to exploratory courses ("Great Productions" video production, "Books with Spines" advanced literature study for Middle School scholars, etc.) to High School varieties (Science Fiction, Satire, Horror, English Lit., Western Lit., etc.). College courses include Storytelling, Satire, Media Literacy and Speculative Fiction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Neo-Classical, fortified and enriched with humor, ritual, storytelling, lots of strange accents, year-long spiraling content, long-term projects and random & edifiying scholar activities.
