I have been teaching for over 15 years. I currently serve as the Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition teacher and vertical team leader. I am also the Literacy Coach for my local school.
I believe in letting students do most of the talking when appropriate. I strive to create lessons where students wrestle with their own beliefs and thoughts on issues. I believe in providing a balance of interactive lectures with student-centered instruction.
