TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Eleven years of teaching English/Language Arts to grades 6-12.

MY TEACHING STYLE

You have to do a little of every style to be most effective for every student; I mix my classes with self-selected reading and writing, small doses of lecture, moderate dollops of group work, and plenty of time for guided instruction.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In the past I have served as team leader and department chairperson.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS-English/Communications Education, University of Nebraska-Lincoln MFA in Writing, University of Nebraska-Omaha

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm passionate about everything language related, especially young adult literature. My goal has always been to make my students excited about reading and writing, too, and that's what I gear my assignments and projects to do.
