TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for more than ten years: computers and technology; junior high math; and literature, writing, and grammar.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I work with the high-achieving groups in a leveled literature program, so my lessons are designed to develop their critical thinking and verbal and written expression skills. I use differentiated instruction techniques to reach all my students, but always encourage them to work to their highest potential. My quizzes and assignments are keyed to Bloom's Taxonomy, leading students to greater depth of thinking and expression.
