I have taught middle school, high school, and adult ESOL classes. In my school, I have also led Professional Development courses on lesson structure using research based strategies.
I believe in a teach me, show me, let me teaching style. Modeling is the best way I show my students what I expect of them. I do this both socially in the classroom and with assignments. I feel that students learn best by great examples.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, biking, playing volleyball, and spending time with my family. I participate in a "40 book challenge" each year with my students and I'm always searching for the next book they will enjoy. I also enjoy reading books on teaching strategies because there is always time to become a better teacher!
