TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For six years I worked in a small, rural school in Northern Wisconsin. (How rural, you ask? The nearest Wal-Mart was an hour away.) I taught six classes of high school English, from freshmen to seniors, and loved every minute of it. Then, I moved three hours away to a larger district (the nearest Wal-Mart is two miles from my apartment), where I teach 8th grade English.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In my dreams, I'm an enthralling English teacher whose mix of lecture, creative writing, and projects keeps the students engaged and interested in literature. In reality, my class thrives on chaos--productive, energetic, exhausting chaos. We avoid textbooks, balance formal and creative writing, have fun, and attempt to prepare for The Test while also knowing full well that The Test is nonsense and there are far more important ways to spend our time. A creative, analytical mind is guaranteed to make you a stronger, smarter person; a good test score is not.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from a small rural high school (50 in my graduating class), went to the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay, and returned to a rural school. I now teach in a middle school of 600+ students.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Eight years in, and I'm still working 12-hour days and weekends to keep up with my students, understand their abilities, and reinvent the wheel. (Oh, that damn wheel!) Hence, a plethora of materials I can post for other teachers to hopefully make their days shorter. Also, I love books, think grammar is wonderful, and will write about anything anywhere...and I only hope my students someday feel the same.
