For the past 10 years I have taught literature to grades 9 and 11 as well as a desktop publishing class that produces the yearbook made up of 10th through 12th graders. However, teaching is actually my fourth profession. I worked in Public Access Television for 3 years, in Advertising as a writer/producer for 6 years and Master Learning Coach (a regional trainer) for Starbucks Coffee Company for 6 years.
Presenting information and skills in an interactive forum, then asking students to critically evaluate material and respond to scenarios and questions for which there is more than one right answer. I design my curriculum to encourage independent thinking and problem solving skills.
