TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been grateful to teach 7th and 8th grade English/LA since 2008 at the number one ranked middle school in Orange County, CA. Prior to that, I had taught 9th, 10th, and 12th grades at a high school in Garden Grove, CA. Even at home, I continue my job by exploring and learning with my three year old son and wife. In my free time, I enjoy playing and writing music on the guitar, and I coach middle school soccer every fall.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Passion and inspiration! Teaching students how to connect concepts to their everyday lives. A teacher's job is not to get students to be able to recite material from a textbook, but to inspire students to be invested in their education and to believe that what they are learning does matter; it does translate to their lives.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

* Bachelors of Arts in English Literature at the University of Redlands, CA.
* Masters of Arts in Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix
