After 18 years as a Middle School (3) and High School (15) teacher, I am currently making the shift to College Professor. As a result of my time in the classroom, I have years of accumulated materials. As time permits, I will update and post years of lessons and teaching materials. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. And please feel free to take some of these materials off my hands, because I can't keep storing all these books! Plus, I really want to know they are going to help students learn in the classroom.
