TEACHING EXPERIENCE

High school is my home. For the past seven years, I've taught a good variety of courses, from teamed and regular English (9-11) to English 9 and 10 Honors, AP Language and Composition and most recently AP Capstone (Seminar). I try to be active at my school, running the school's writing center, sponsoring clubs ranging from NEHS to the school's yo-yo club. I love where I am, and I love teaching high school kids. I hope I can share some of the joys and successes I have experienced at my school with you. I also hope to learn all I can from this community.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I share a student-centered philosophy with many of my colleagues. I do mix in direct instruction, but often when I do, I still try to make it interactive.
