MY TEACHING STYLE

"Come to the edge. We might fall. Come to the edge. It's too high! COME TO THE EDGE! And they came And he pushed And they flew." -Christopher Logue

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Some student snippets (aka from the mouths of babes).... "You made learning fun, different, enlightening, and treated us like adults." "There are few people who really get through to stubborn, obstinate, annoying, frightened teenagers. You got through to me." "Until I stepped into your class, I was taught 'the one right point of view' and just accepted what I was told." "Your class was a tough one, but only because you would never let us sell ourselves short of what you knew we had." "You have been the most intriguing teacher - my all-time favorite - no lie!! "The most enjoyable class of my high school career!" "You taught me to be excited when my thoughts differ from others, and you simply taught me to think better." "...a teacher who dares to change 'the way it is' and always believes in us students."
