TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching middle, high school and junior college English and history for fourteen years. It has been a great experience. I love teaching because it gives me a chance to be creative and to have a job that is always interesting. No day is ever the same, thank goodness.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a variety of activities so that my students can learn according to their specific learning styles. I love to incorporate technology any time I can including allowing students to create movies to demonstrate their understanding of a concept. I also love arts, crafts, and skits in additional to the traditional ways of learning.
