TEACHING EXPERIENCE

* Humanities Department Head * 7+ years teaching English and Social Studies (7-12) * Curriculum Writer * Former Philadelphia public school teacher * Currently a San Diego public school teacher

MY TEACHING STYLE

Practical, high-interest, and light-hearted

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Temple University, B.A. in History Temple University, M.Ed.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As a public school teacher in Philadelphia, the majority of my students were 2-3 years below grade level. The textbooks were too advanced, we had limited computer access, and they were getting frustrated. As Department Head, I had the added pressure to increase test scores. This is when I began making Common Core Aligned, high-interest, and EASY to implement materials.
