TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I presently teach 7th grade honors at the top rated middle school in Southern California (go Bobcats!), but have taught grades 9-12, both college prep and AP, as well. 2011-2012 is my 11th year as an English teacher, and I love my job more than ever.

MY TEACHING STYLE

High on critical thinking and on humor, especially when it comes to grammar.
