I taught Spanish for 10 years and then switched to English. I currently teach English 12 , two Dual Credit Writing and Literature classes, and a Worldview class. I am also responsible for curriculum development.
I prefer interactive dialog and Socratic seminars. Participation and engagement in class discussions is very important in my classes.

I teach high school seniors college preparatory classes. Based on statistics that show high school graduates in the U.S. struggle with college level writing, my classes are writing intensive and rigorous. It is a lot of work, but very rewarding.
