TEACHING EXPERIENCE

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.

MY TEACHING STYLE

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.
