TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Monroe Township, NJ - 2 years Franklin Towne CHS, PA - 7 years

MY TEACHING STYLE

Discovery Based Learning is what my teaching preference is. Allowing students to take responsibility for their learning and guiding them through the process helps make the content "stick" better than presenting it through lecturing. They also enjoy the various activities and differentiation the DBAs allow.
