TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 9th and 10th grade Standard and Honors English courses for 11 years. I also teach a junior and senior level course (Teacher Cadets) which is for students interested in the teaching profession. I have also taught Expository Writing at a local community college part-time and at my county's local Alternative Learning Program for 8 years in the evenings. Additionally, I work with OCS students online through my state's virtual public high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Humor with a little mix of "old school" and pop culture. I love to keep my students wondering what will happen next!
