My wife and I have been teaching four six years, two in Colorado Springs, Colorado and four in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Combines, we have taught all English/Language Arts secondary levels (6-12). On top of that, we have also taught the elective courses of World Literature, African American Literature, and Creative Writing. It has been a fantastic journey being a married couple and teaching the same subject area.
Energetic, Enthusiastic, and Above All....Positive! If your students know that you believe in them, then they will begin to believe in themselves. We need to show students that they can become successful. The only true way to create this type of situation is to differentiate the learning so that each student is met at their own personal level. With this in mind, our products range from prescribed/concrete lessons to those that are very challenging/creative in nature.
