TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching high school English in a Long Island, New York public school for over 15 years. My experience includes inclusion, academic, honors, and AP students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe students learn best when they are engaged. Therefore, I use many activities that can be done in groups. In addition, I often use PowerPoints to introduce and expand on topics. I also do my best to make the literature we read relevant to students' lives and the world in which we live.
