TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Adjunct Professor at Westwood College, Student Teaching at Bishop Ireton High School, VCU English tutor for foreign exchange students, and Community Assistant at VCU, Squad Leader 3rd ID 4/64 Charlie Company, 1st platoon.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I apply Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence's to my teaching style and try not to teach my students but create an environment in which they can learn. I am familiar with adhering to SOL's and the public school system and try to find ways to incorporate their standards into a fun and engaging directed classroom learning experience.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I used to want to be famous when I was little. Stardom was the first thing I can remember thinking of as a status I wanted to attain. I thought... I could be an actor. I probably could have been an actor too... adolescence had other plans for me... Why would I want to pretend to be the hero, or pretend to save the day when I could go out and be that hero who saves the day? Actors are just immortalizing a role; they aren't ever actually living that life. I realized I didn't want fame; I wanted to make a difference. It only took 25 years for me to realize that the most powerful thing you can be a part of is the education of today's future. Now I'm finally in a position where I have the credentials to teach... I'm excited to be here!
