TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Two years ago, I moved to Oklahoma when my husband transferred with his job. Prior to that, I taught for eight years in Texas. During that time I taught 10th grade English, 12th grade English, 9th grade English, SAT Prep, and remedial courses. Over the past four years, I have taught Pre-AP English 2, AP English Language & Composition, and English 3 Dual Credit. Most recently, I worked for an online high school teaching 9th and 10th grade English.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that flexibility in style is the most important quality to have as a teacher. I thoroughly enjoy cooperative learning activities so I use those when I can. But I also know that cooperative learning is not always appropriate so I vary those activities with outside reading, whole class discussion, and independent activities.
