TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching high school English for twenty-six years, and have loved every one of them. I teach a broad range of students, from those in the non-academic stream to those in the International Baccalaureate program. I am also department head and an instructional leader who has conducted many PD sessions for district teachers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have always seen my self as a guide, showing my students how to learn, rather than just what to learn. I focus on creating engaging material that fosters critical thinking and love of reading & writing. I also attempt to incorporate physical activity in my classroom, so students can engage all of their learning styles. Most importantly, I'm a learner too. I spend a lot of time trying to understand how students learn best, and am constantly revamping my lessons to meet their needs.
