Here is one of my favorite lessons to teach: imagery and irony. I love teaching this because it allows me to really get the students talking. While that sounds weird because it seems like a lecture on boring English terms, the students really get

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching English in a youth correctional facility after being educated at Villanova University. After my first teaching job, I began teaching at a local public high school. I taught fresh, sophomores, junior, and seniors. I taught American, World, and British literature and many electives. Some elective include: Creative Writing, Philosophy and Literature, and Reading Lab. I teach different levels of students. I've had lower level, special education freshman to AP level seniors. I am currently team teaching American Studies at both the honors and college prep level as well as an honors World Literature course.. I am teaching two electives this year: a yearbook elective in the fall and in the spring I will be teaching a Holocaust Literature elective.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach using a variety of different methods. I like to teach skills first, then have the students apply the learned skills to literary works. I do like to use pop culture references in my lessons to keep things fun and ground the skills being taught to something the students already know and understand. The logic behind it is that the students, after developing an understanding of the skill, can then use the learned skill on a more challenging, literary work. I also like to do workshops on problem areas for my students--especially in writing!
