TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the past 20 years, I've taught a variety of subjects from Social Studies to Science and discovered a love for Language Arts (English). I've taught Language Arts for 12 years in both middle school and high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style focus on student centered activities. Students learn best when they are actively engaged in what they are learning.
