TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in classrooms from the preschool to the high school level. While I was a full-time teacher, my experience was concentrated in elementary to high school. After I became an administrator, my experience broadened to include pre-k.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is lively and engaging. If I'm bored, you KNOW the students are bored!

I have been published in English Journal, and I train teachers for my employer, which has a network of private schools in five states.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.A. in English and a Master of Arts in Teaching. I am certified in French, English, and Journalism.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a St. Louis native but currently live in Las Vegas, where I am suffering in the 110 degree heat. My husband and I have no children but we do have a fantastically fat cat, Scout, who mostly watches TV or hides under the bed.
