Twenty-seven years of teaching American and World History.
I've taught all levels from honors, to average, to special education, to ESL. In addition, I have fifteen years experience teaching in an inclusion setting. As a result, I have a very good idea how to differentiate my materials in order to reach a wide range of learning styles and ability levels. My materials include many custom made animations, audio clips, video clips, and activities involving movement in order to keep interest level high and to avoid monotony.
Who's Who In America's Teachers (I was featured in this several times. Sorry to say, though, you'll have to take my word for it. I didn't keep track of the years!) KJOY Teacher of the Week (local radio station - I got a plaque with my name spelled wrong and a fifty dollar gift certificate to a local restaurant. It was a nice surprise, and the plaque has proven to be a nice conversation starter!)
