TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught grades one through five around the world, including a year of preschool language development. I have also taught adult English internationally both through a language school and at a refugee camp. I have implemented instructional programs after an earthquake on a remote island, multiple typhoons and even while on evacuation alert in the Middle East. My lesson ideas and materials are designed to be implemented under a wide range of conditions with limited materials.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Over the years, my style has developed to what I would call a centered approach. I'm all about hands-on, holistic literature experiences, but am not above working in some exercises from a grammar textbook when necessary.
