TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 8th year as an English teacher in Florida. I have taught specialty courses such as Research and Creative Writing as well as units focused on Native Americans and the Holocaust. I prefer high school level literature and writing but enjoy the narrative style and creative approach that is still encouraged in middle school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Although a routine certainly exists in my class, students are also surprised every week by a random topic or discussion that I decide to implement. I enjoy peculiar and debatable topics that divide the class and allow for the students to take a stand and support their decision. Many times, we read articles that we do not immediately relate with but I believe in exposing my classes to different cultures and predicaments. With all of the hate and disproval of religions and ethnic practices, I'd like to think that if students leave my room a little less judgmental and a bit more open to different customs, we may stand a chance in having a safer and more accepting world.
