TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi everyone, I'm Lori. I have been teaching in the same rural Pennsylvania school district since 1986. I've taught 11 and 12 English, all levels: Academic, College Prep., and Honors. I taught Shakespeare class, a class in Keystone Test preparation, and various odds and ends. I was a class advisor, cheerleading coach, and drama director. I have a great husband and two kids. My daughter attends the University of Pennsylvania and my son is enrolled at Lycoming College.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm an old-fashioned teacher. I believe in providing students with essential information and developing their fundamental skills. I like to then set them off on an adventure independently or with partners or in a group to explore and discover. I assess their learning through various activities, writing,presentations and projects.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm proud of the success that my students achieve. Many return from college with "thank you's" and positive feedback.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education English Masters of Liberal Arts Various post-graduate credits

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My favorite TpT activity is creating dynamic PowerPoint presentations. If you ever have a request for a particular topic for a presentation, please contact me through the Q&A tab in my store. I'd be glad to consider creating an engaging presentation for your class.
