TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a secondary educator for 13 years in two distinctive environments: the first in an affluent high school and the second in a Title I school. I have taught all levels of ELA - remedial, college preparatory, honors, and AP. Additionally, I have taught ESL/ELD for 9 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is a rag-tag combination of strict analysis with loosey-goosey antics for good measure.
