TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been grateful for a vast and diverse range of teaching experience over ten years. I've taught high school in both inner-city Chicago and rural Minnesota; I've taught middle school Humanities (literature and history!) at the independent University of Chicago Laboratory Schools and Language Arts for Chapel Hill and Carrboro City Schools in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I currently teach high school English for DeLand-Weldon High School in central Illinois. I've taught gifted students, reluctant readers, English language learners, and students with special needs, and embraced all their passions as well as their learning needs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

If the kids are bored, I am too! My lessons are active and varied, but also thought-provoking, aiming to make student learning memorable, authentic, and challenging.
