TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been in and out of the classroom for 28 years now. I love teaching language arts, particularly using the workshop model where I can confer with students individually. Technology is also a passion of mine- it's a tool for deepening learning, not a babysitter.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I see myself as a facilitator in the classroom. Students all come in at different levels and it is my job to help each of them reach their fullest potential.
