Before I began teaching my own English Language Arts classroom, I substitute taught for three years. I currently in my second year of teaching English full time, having followed my 9th grade students to 10th grade.
I teach with a coach, mentor, and guide-on-the-side mentality. I prefer to have short, precise lectures and let students engage in the rigor needed to complete my assignments.
Yet to be added
I acquired my bachelor's degree in Communications and Theater from the University of Michigan and my teaching degree in English and Speech from Saginaw Valley State University.
I am a single father of four beautiful children. Two of them are autistic and one of them suffers from ADHD. I have my children all but 5 days out of the month. I am very busy with their and my schedules and wouldn't have it any other way. On top of everything else, I am a published author, having written two novels in the fantasy and comedy genres.
