TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching in a high school setting since 2000. I've worked in two school districts, one with a graduating class of 800 and another with a graduating class of 150. I have taught as a adjunct at the local community college for two years as well. More recently, I have been a teacher trainer with the PARLO program. PARLO is a Standards-Based Assessment program that emphasizes relearning, reassessment, and teacher support and training.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love teaching with standards-based instruction. I love that students are given a second chance and a sense of responsibility.
