TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have taught for a total of over 30 years, and during that time we've developed a lot of unique, rigorous, and engaging lessons. Scott teaches Advanced Placement Language and Composition along with Mythology, and he has scored AP Language essays for the College Board. Courtney has taught Freshmen and Senior English. We continuously push ourselves to learn more through professional development opportunities so we can make sure we're at the top of our game in the classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe engaging lessons inspire students to do their best, so we work hard to create interactive experiences where students are allowed to work with each other and us to develop a deeper understanding of the content. We adapt many of our lessons to incorporate new technologies so we are preparing our students for the next steps they take in the digital world.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

We are both National Board Certified Teachers with English Language Arts endorsements.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Scott has a MA in English Literature from Portland State University along with his Masters in Teaching from the University of Portland. Courtney has a Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Oregon.

Together we are raising two lively and smart little ones who will hopefully grow up loving literature as much as we do!
